    0

    QUITO: Ecuador President Rafael Correa on Thursday (Friday in Manila) said major oil exploration in an unspoilt Amazon nature reserve could go ahead after the failure of an ambitious plan to secure billions of dollars in donations to avoid drilling in the area. Correa said he would seek authorization from lawmakers to allow drilling in a region of the Yasuni National Park, which was designated a world biosphere reserve by United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization in 1989.
