In the framework of the Ecuador-Peru Presidential Meeting, President Martín Vizcarra expressed that they will support the incorporation of Ecuador to the Pacific Alliance, which he described as a “dynamic mechanism of regional integration.”
“We celebrate Ecuador’s interest in approaching the Pacific Alliance, Peru will offer all the facilities that are within our reach to achieve its incorporation into this dynamic mechanism of regional integration,” he said.
Vizcarra received from President Lenin Moreno the National Order of Merit in the Grand Collar Award, to ratify Ecuador’s willingness to strengthen relations and live borders.
Moreno said that the two countries have developed projects of social, economic and cultural integration and that peace resolved borderline deficits, but above all strengthened development and integration. They have improved health, education, roads, infrastructure, urban regeneration, tourism and production.
The Ecuadorian president said that the signing of peace in 1998 could be an ‘unfair’ solution for some, but for all it was wise because, for example, the percentage of gross domestic product (GDP) that went to arms was used in better things.
Vizcarra arrived in Ecuador this Thursday morning, he was received with honors along with his wife, Maribel Díaz, at the Palacio de Carondelet, met privately with Moreno for half an hour, then received the decoration and witnessed the commemoration ceremony of the signature of the twenty years of the Treaty of Peace of Brasilia between Ecuador and Peru.
Moreno offered an official lunch and at 3:00 pm the farewell was scheduled.
For today, the two leaders are scheduled to lead the XII Binational Cabinet, from 11:00, then there will be another official lunch and, at 3:45, the signing ceremony of the presidential declaration, the action plan and other bilateral instruments.
The visit will end with a shared declaration. (I)
