Ecuadorean President Rafael Correa, center, declared that bilateral ties with neighboring Peru are at their strongest. The fraternal gesture came at a state visit to
Lima in June where Correa and Peruvian President Alan García, left, signed an agreement
to open a Peruvian interest section in Ecuador’s embassy in Switzerland and an
Ecuadorean interest section in Peru’s embassy in Algeria. The leaders also inked
agreements governing defense and transborder issues.
