Lima (EFE) , announced this Thursday the Foreign Ministry of the Andean nation.
Through a message on Twitter, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs added that, as a consequence of the position adopted by Honduras, bilateral relations “will be maintained, indefinitely, at the level of business managers.”
Castro condemned, during his speech at the summit of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (Celac), the “coup d’état” in Peru and showed his “solidarity” with the ousted “legitimate, elected” president Pedro Castillo, from whom he asked his “immediate release”.
The Honduran president also said in her speech on Tuesday that “the right does not rest” in the region, because in her opinion “they cynically talk about development and plan coups.”
“Through their media machinery, the economic boycott and political persecution, the ‘lawfare’ (judicial persecution), they maintain a permanent aggression against our peoples,” said the also wife of former Honduran President Manuel Zelaya.
Peru rejects interference
The Peruvian Foreign Ministry has reacted with different measures towards the governments of the region that have so far ignored the legitimacy of President Boluarte, who constitutionally succeeded Castillo after he attempted a coup on December 7 .
Thus, Vice Foreign Minister Ignacio Higueras conveyed to the Chilean ambassador in Lima on Wednesday the “discomfort” that the “disrespectful manner” in which President Gabriel Boric referred, in his speech at Celac, to the President Boluarte, reported the Foreign Ministry on its Twitter account.
He added that “the course chosen by the constitutional government of President Boluarte is the advancement of general elections so that Peruvians decide without interference and in peace the destiny of Peru.”
This Tuesday, Boric, who made his debut in a Celac conclave after assuming power a year ago, stressed “the urgent need for a change of direction in Peru.”
“We cannot be indifferent when today, in our sister nation of Peru, people who go out to march and demand what they consider fair end up being shot by those who should defend them,” Boric indicated before the bloc’s plenary.
Possible actions against Bolivia
On the other hand, the Foreign Ministry announced on Monday that it is evaluating taking action in the face of what it defines as “acts of interference” by Bolivian President Luis Arce, who referred this Sunday to the crisis the country is going through.
“We have the Peruvian people in a fight to recover their democracy and also to recover the right to elect a government that represents them,” said the president of Bolivia.
Since Boluarte assumed the presidency, different political and social organizations have taken to the streets to demand his resignation, the closure of Congress and the call for immediate general elections, but these mobilizations have caused the death of 63 people, since last December, due to to the confrontations with the Police and for events related to the blockades and protests.
