Chile Says Fujimori Arrival Will Not Cause Problems with Peru
Santiago, Chile, Nov 7(Prensa Latina) Chilean President Ricardo Lagos said on Monday that the surprise arrival of ex Peruvian President Alberto Fujimori in Santiago, a fugitive from his own country, should not interfere with relations between both countries.

"I hope this situation won't be an obstacle to the ties we should have with Peru, and won't mean greater difficulty in what have been disagreements regarding the limits in the Pacific Ocean," Lagos said. He reiterated that the courts are where steps to be taken are decided v/v the neighboring government's claims.

Lagos' remarks came after his Peruvian counterpart Alejandro Toledo made public his appreciation to Chile for Fujimori's detention early Monday at Lima's request.

Toledo said his government would not allow anyone "to try to ridicule everyone by paying a half million dollars for a plane," and he expressed confidence in the Peruvian courts.

According to Chilean press reports from Lima, Toledo wondered why the International Police (Interpol) were unable to discover the fugitive ex president in stops prior to Santiago, when he landed in Mexico and the US.

Fujimori was taken into custody after the Peruvian Foreign Ministry asked Santiago for his preventive detention, a measure included in the extradition treaty signed between the two countries, which was welcomed by Chilean Supreme Court Justice Orlando Alvarez, who is in charge of the case.
