Panama’s President Richard Martinelli met with Spanish and Italian officials on Friday to try to end the conflict over the Panama Canal.

A Spanish-led consortium extending the canal is claiming overrun costs of more than a billion euros.

Martinelli says Panama is not responsible and that the consortium agreed a fixed price.
