MEXICO CITY (Sputnik) — Earlier Peru's government recalled the ambassador to Ecuador for consultations amid the construction of the wall.

"We ask for a meeting, I think, it is necessary, important, to reach a final agreement on this issue, I also think that we need a constant dialogue with Foreign Minister [Ricardo] Luna, but we have suspended the construction under Peru's request," Espinosa was quoted as saying by the Andina news agency.

The authorities of Ecuador claim that the wall would help to control floods, which damage the towns close t the border, while Peruvian officials argue that the wall would disrupt the normal flow of water, thus, increasing threat to Peruvian people.
