The two governments have yet to resolve the issue. The last meeting was held in September in New York within the framework of the General Assembly of the United Nations.
It is estimated that Venezuela owes Panamanian companies more than $1 billion, with about $427 million being owed to Copa Airlines.
The debt is due to the strict currency controls implemented by the government of Nicolas Maduro.
Copa is not the only airline in this situation. The International Association of Air Transport says Venezuela owes airlines a total of $3.7 billion. Many airlines have stopped accepting Venezuelan currency for tickets and only accepts credit card transactions in American dollars.
Association of Users of the Colón Free Zone President Marco Tellez said yesterday that the resumption of the talks would be a positive step to resolving the issue, although he noted that previous discussions have not yielded any results.
