Despite not saying Trump’s name aloud, both leaders made it clear where they stand on the issue of a US-Mexico border wall. (andina)

TODAY COLOMBIA – The Presidents of Peru and Colombia expressed their support for Mexico this weekend regarding the wall US President Donald Trump is planning to build along the border to out immigrants.

Pedro Pablo Kuczynski of Peru and Juan Manuel Santos of Colombia both made statements about the controversial border wall plan at a meeting in the southern region of Arequipa, Peru, during which they called for strengthening the so-called Alliance of the Pacific.

“We are seeing at the moment that (Mexico) is facing serious difficulties that are not of its doing,” PPK said in reference to Trump’s border wall, as well as the 20-percent tax he plans to impose on all goods coming over the border to pay for its construction.

“We have to show solidarity in our ideals, in world trade, which has done so much good,” PPK said.

President Santos stressed the need to “join the call of countries that highlight the principles that have done so much good for the world,” and added that “there are uncertain clouds floating around the world and the way to proceed now is to reaffirm the internal solidity between countries and the alliances between countries.”

“We want to join in this call to countries to uphold those principles that the world has so agreed upon, principles of free trade, respect of treaties, a joint search for multilateral solutions to multilateral problems,” he said.

None of the leaders in Colombia and Peru mentioned Trump directly but stressed the importance of respecting trade agreements and global integration.
