Sources of the Peruvian Ministry of Foreign Affairs told Andina news agencies that the suit is ready and after finishing the translation process, it will be filed in English before the ICJ.
According to sources, the filing of the suit will be carried out before the third week of January, and will be in charge of government-appointed representative, Allan Wagner.
