Lima, Jun 4. -Peruvian progressive presidential candidate Ollanta Humala intends to strengthen relations with Chile, he said on the eve of the election runoff, in which he faces conservative Keiko Fujimori.
Humala said at a press conference that better relations are necessary because both countries will always be neighbors, and he expressed interest in maintaining good relations with reciprocity, mutual respect and noninterference.
He stated that this implies solving the problems between the two sides, such as their conflict over maritime access, now a case in the International Court of The Hague, and specified that both states should comply with whatever the court rules. (PL)
