Brazil's defense minister says that if Colombian FARC rebels enter his country's territory they'll "be met with bullets."

Minister Nelson Jobim made the comment Monday in Colombia, where he met with foreign and defense ministers and President Alvaro Uribe. The two nations share a 1,022-mile border.

Colombia is in a diplomatic row with Ecuador over that country's alleged harboring of Colombian rebels. It claims rebels fired mortars from Ecuador into Colombia on Friday, wounding one soldier.

Ecuador denies the claim.

Jobim has said there is no evidence the FARC has a presence in Brazil.
