Peruvian President Humala: "We Have No Quarrel with Chile"

MANILA - "We are not at odds with Chile, but sometimes there are moments of tension," Peruvian President Ollanta Humala told EFE while attending the APEC summit in Manila along with Chilean leader Michelle Bachelet at a time when dialogue between the two is going through one of those moments.

"We greeted each other, we talked briefly," Humala said on the first day of the two-day Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit that began Wednesday.

The Chilean Foreign Ministry has acknowledged that tensions with Lima exist over the Peruvian government's decision earlier this month to create a new district, La Yarada-Los Palos, in a disputed border area, calling it an "unfriendly, unwelcome and unwise act."

Chile and Peru interpret differently their border treaty of 1929 and a ruling issued last year by the International Court of Justice (ICJ) in The Hague regarding the maritime boundary of their common border.

The creation of the new district led Chile to recall its ambassador to Lima, Roberto Ibarra, who has not yet returned to his diplomatic post in Peru.

Meanwhile, the ambassador of Peru in Chile, Fernando Rojas, traveled to Lima "for personal reasons" after the Chilean government expressed anger at remarks he made during a visit to the presidential palace of La Moneda, during which he said his country had "a very strong case" in the dispute.

In Manila, Humala stressed that, regardless of the situation, both countries maintain strong ties.

"With Chile we are partners in the Pacific Alliance, APEC, and the Trans-Pacific Partnership and we also have free trade agreements. So I think we have to look at all this in perspective," Humala said.
