The Costa Rican Foreign Ministry announced it had reached an agreement with a number of Central American countries on sending the Cuban migrants currently on the country’s territory to Mexico, a statement issued Monday said.

MEXICO CITY (Sputnik) – The undocumented migrants will be transferred to the republic of El Salvador by air and then will go to Mexico by bus, traversing Guatemala, the statement highlighted.

The deal on the issue was reached following multilateral talks in the Guatemala City.

Approximately 8,000 Cubans have been staying in Costa Rica since mid-November, the country’s immigration agencies claim. The same month, the Nicaraguan authorities refused to let migrants cross their state.

The Cubans tried to burst through the Pena Blancas border crossing and even managed to get into Nicaragua, having walked about 10 kilometers into the territory of the country, but local police officers stopped them. As a result, the Cubans were returned back to Costa Rica.
