Dec. 25 (Bloomberg) -- Bolivia and Peru are discussing the possible construction of a railroad between the two countries, news service EFE reported today, citing comments by President Evo Morales.

Speaking to Bolivia’s state radio, Morales said he discussed the project of building a railroad with Peru’s President Ollanta Humala in a meeting on Dec. 22.

“We talked a lot, for example, about the construction of a railroad from the border with Brazil,” Morales said in the radio interview, the Spanish news service reported.

The train line would start from the Bolivian cities of Puerto Quijarro or Puerto Suarez, near the border with Brazil, and would end in the port city of Ilo, in southern Peru, according to Morales.

Morales didn’t offer more details about the project.
