Tuesday, June 15, 2010

Members of the Central American Integration System (Sica) will issue a statement condemning North Korea’s attack on the South Korean Navy warship Cheonan when they meet in Panama this month, according to Panama’s ambassador to Seoul.

Jaime Leonel Lasso del Castillo said that the tensions on the Korean Peninsula will be on the agenda for the June 29 summit, and that most of the countries belonging to Sica support the results of South Korea’s investigation into the disaster.

Lasso said the conference will touch on issues ranging from politics to commerce and investment to economic cooperation. “SICA will ask Korea to open its market to more imports,” he said.
