Panama Canal expansion stops amid dispute

Published: 02.05.14, 20:35 / Israel News

Work on the ambitious Panama Canal expansion project was halted Wednesday after talks broke down on how to settle a dispute over $1.6 billion in cost overruns. Panama Canal Authority Administrator Jorge Quijano told a news conference the stoppage will give authorities time to analyze how to proceed on the project to widen the canal.

 

"I don't even want to suggest that the next steps will be easy or risk-free," a visibly angered Quijano told reporters in Panama. "What I do want to make clear is that we will not yield to blackmail." (AP)
