    'Breaking point’ reached in Peru after supporters of losing candidate Fujimori attack ministers’ vehicles, members of press, 15.07.2021

    The interim president of Peru has warned that the country is on the brink after supporters of Keiko Fujimori, a right-wing candidate who refused to concede defeat in a presidential election, went on a rampage in the capital.

    “We cannot and we will not tolerate any acts of violence,” Peru’s interim president Francisco Sagasti said on Wednesday evening in an interview with Canal N news channel. Speaking about a day of violence in the capital Lima, he described it as a “breaking point” and pledged to use his power to “maintain tranquility and peace without incurring excesses” in policing.

    The warning came after supporters of Keiko Fujimori, a right-wing presidential candidate from the Popular Force party, caused a disturbance in Lima. Near the city’s main square, they intercepted the cars of two cabinet members, Health Minister Oscar Ugarte and Housing Minister Solangel Fernandez, who were on their way to the Government Palace to brief the media about the ongoing fight against Covid-19.

    The protesters stopped the vehicles and hit them with stones and other weapons, before the politicians were rescued by the police. Neither minister was harmed, but Ugarte said the incident constituted an attack against the government, since the cars were clearly marked as official government vehicles.

    The episode was part of a larger unrest involving people identified as members of a radical group called La Resistencia. They attempted to tear down barriers surrounding the palace in a bid to reach President Sagasti. The police deployed tear gas and mounted officers to quell the rioting.

    The demonstrators also harassed members of the press who were covering the protests. Canal N correspondent Fatima Chavez was accosted in the middle of her live report from the scene. Other journalists were reportedly targeted by the protesters too.

    The unruly demonstration in Lima was in support of Fujimori’s claims of election fraud, which prevented her rival, leftist Pedro Castillo, from being confirmed as the next president of Peru. The official count put Castillo 44,000 votes ahead of Fujimori, but she filed multiple challenges with a special election jury, resulting in weeks of delays.

    All of those appeals have been rejected by jury members due to lack of proof, but Fujimori also refused to accept those rulings. She has accused Sagasti of taking Castillo’s side due to his refusal to invite a foreign audit of the ballot as she requested. International observers said the June 6 election in Peru was legitimate.

    After Wednesday’s violence, Fujimori blasted the actions of her supporters, saying on Twitter that her party only accepted peaceful protests. Popular Force distanced itself from acts attributed to La Resistencia in the past. For example, it condemned the vandalism of a memorial to two young people killed during anti-government marches in Lima in November 2020. Local media identified one of the cars involved in the vandalism as being owned by Popular Force.

    The November demonstrations happened after the impeachment and removal from office of President Martin Vizcarra. Sagasti came into power after the five-day presidency of Manuel Merino, who resigned after the deaths of the protesters. In his Wednesday interview, Sagasti stressed how his government was taking a different approach to policing protests, compared to his predecessor.

    Critics say Fujimori is using stalling tactics in an attempt to postpone Castillo’s confirmation as president-elect beyond the July 28 deadline, when the new president is required by law to take office.

    Fujimori is the daughter and political successor of former president Alberto Fujimori, who is now serving a lengthy prison term for corruption and violations of human rights during his tenure. She herself is under investigation for corruption. Her ongoing bid for the presidency is the third in her career following two unsuccessful attempts in 2011 and 2016.

    Peru's Electoral Justice officially endorses candidate Pedro Castillo's victory in presidential elections., 18.07.2021.

    After widespread popular mobilizations, Peru's Electoral Justice finally reviewed and rejected the claims of rightist Keiko Fujimori to annul the votes of Professor Pedro Castillo, making the electoral victory of the leftist candidate official.

    After a long wait of more than a month, the rural teacher and trade unionist from one of the poorest Andean areas of the country will be proclaimed this Sunday, 18, President-elect. He will take office on July 28.

    The rightists responded with violence in the streets and with a last maneuver to delay the proclamation of Castillo, in the style of Donald Trump in the United States, which currently president Jair Bolsonaro threatens to imitate if he loses the 2022 presidential elections in Brazil.

    Fujimori Admits Defeat in Peru's Election, But Calls Castillo Victory 'Illegitimate, by Morgan Artyukhina for Sputniknews, 19.07.2021.

    Right-wing candidate Keiko Fujimori has finally given in after more than a month of contesting the June 6 presidential election, acknowledging her defeat by socialist candidate Pedro Castillo.

    In a television address Monday evening, Fujimori said she said she "will recognize the results because it is what the law and the Constitution that I have sworn to uphold." However, she dismissed Castillo's victory by denouncing the elections as "illegitimate" and called for mobilizations "in defense of democracy."

    ​Earlier in the presidential race, Fujimori had taunted Castillo and his party, Peru Libre, for raising allegations of fraud. However, once the ballot count in the second round of elections on June 6 began to turn against her, Fujimori began attributing the changing winds to fraud, despite not having evidence of fraud. She sought the discarding of hundreds of thousands of ballots, which had the potential to reverse the result, since Castillo was 44,000 votes ahead.

    International observers reported no evidence of fraud, either, even those like the Organization of American States that in the past have readily resorted to such accusations in order to run interference against socialist or left-wing candidates winning elections.

    Peru's National Jury of Elections (JNE) said on Twitter on Monday afternoon that it had dismissed five appeals by Fujimori's Fuerza Popular party and the body would "proceed to the preparation of the act of proclamation of general results."

    Keiko Fujimori is the daughter of right-wing ex-dictator Alberto Fujimori, who ruled Peru from 1990 until 2000. His tenure was associated with harsh neoliberal economic reforms, privatizations, and political terror, including a counterinsurgency war against the Maoist Shining Path movement. The elder Fujimori has been in prison since 2007 and Keiko promised to pardon him if elected president. Many of the elements of his government continued to support his daughter, including his spy chief, Vladimiro Montesinos, who was revealed late last month as having attempted to bribe the JNE to rule Kieko Fujimori was the winner.

    It's about time all of these patently agenda driven claims of fraud be treated like the boy who cried wolf. Every freaking US backed
    scumbag just has to shout "fraud" to get international sympathy from assorted US bootlicks. Enough already. Such accusations
    require proof. In the case of the 2020 US election there was clear evidence of 4 am ballot stuffing via fake 100% pro-Biden mail
    ballots. Gross violations of procedure were observed where votes came from people registered in empty parking lots and vacant buildings.

    In the upcoming elections in Russia we will see the same shit pulled by NATzO's 5th column. They will shout "fraud" without any real
    evidence and totally disjoint from the polling that shows which candidates and parties have real support. Some two bit malcontent
    who calls the 1990s a golden age cannot expect to win any vote in Russia. Even if he "wins" in the western propaganda bubble.

    Fujimori is clearly the same sort of scum.

    Peru: What will be the challenges of the new Castillo Government?, by Uruguayan journalist Fabián Cardozo for Spanish Sputniknews. 23.07.2021.

    After the official proclamation of Pedro Castillo as president-elect of Peru, Peruvian researcher Ramiro Escobar spoke with GPS International to analyze the political perspectives of a country hit by the crisis caused by the pandemic and political and institutional instability.

    The National Jury of Elections of Peru (JNE) proclaimed Pedro Castillo, of Peru Libre (izquierda), as president-elect of the country for the period 2021-2026. For his part, the leftist politician, made a call to build an inclusive Peru after his proclamation. In this context, "for some weeks, Castillo has been turning towards a center-left position, particularly because he has opened the political field and tried to seek allies," the researcher said.

    For his part, "one of the problems that Castillo will have will have to do with his links within the party that launched him to the presidency, Perú Libre, since to a large extent this political sector subscribes to a radical left," he said. Likewise, " this party tries to ensure that Castillo does not go so far to the center of the political spectrum, so from this tension it is said that the appointment of the president of the Council of Ministers will come out, which is something that will outline the route of the new Government," he said.

    Peru's President-elect will try to forge a plural cabinet

    In this sense , "both this appointment and that of the rest of the ministers will be key to make the whole Parliament more potable, as well as to add alliances that provide an acceptable government team for the whole population," he said. For its part, "the pandemic is among the great challenges that the Government will have, since although the number of cases of Covid-19 has fallen considerably, the possibilities of a third wave remain latent," Escobar concluded.

    Pedro Castilllo: The misfortunes of Republican Peru, by Chile's journalist Rafael Luis Gumucio Rivas for El Clarín outlet.  24.07.2021.

    The story taught at school is definitely a set of fallacies. On July 28, Peru will meet 200 years of Independence, (Argentina, Chile and Peru did not exist during the colonial era), were only the viceroyalty, as the New Granada, Mexico, and Peru, and the presidencies and captaincies in Chile, Argentina – River plate -, Ecuador and Venezuela.

    The liberator José de San Martín took the most appropriate path to reach the beaches of Peru, liberating Chile, whose independence we owe to the Argentines. San Martín, less ambitious than Simón Bolívar, understood that the placement of a European monarch was better than a President-dictator, (as Bolivar wished), who appropriated Upper Peru, (today Bolivia), proclaiming himself President for life, along with the name of Bolivia.

    The independence of former colonies in Latin america have very little to do with the wars between Spain and the countries of the area, what we rather call the heroes were freemasons at the service of England, therefore, these nations existed only  due to the intrigues of the Jesuits, well deserved also the expulsion of the european monarchies, and, above all, those made by the great Conde de Aranda, whose plan was smarter than the famous wars of independence).

    The history of the old viceroyalty of Peru has been pretty tragic, and its only glorious episode was to have won the war against Spain, during the mid-NINETEENTH century, thanks to the collaboration of Chile, Argentina, Ecuador, and the Great Colombia, preventing any attempt by Spain to regain its former colonies, which ended by losing them at the end of the NINETEENTH century (with the independence of Cuba, the Philippines, and Puerto Rico).

    The republican history of Peru, during the TWENTIETH century, has been very tragic and military dictatorships, such as that of Velasco Alvarado, Francisco Bermudez, in addition to the period of the election of Alberto Fujimori in the presence of the good but high immoral writer Mario Vargas Llosa, who along with his son, Álvaro, emulator of his father and a poor writer, and editor of the pamphlet The idiota latinoamericano (The Latin American Idiot) when the liberal idiot is himself. Fujimori, let us remember, won comfortably due to the pillage of Alán García, creating around him a group of mafiosi, along with Vladimiro Montesinos and the military.

    The President-elect Fujimori, an unknown rector of an agrarian university, did not even have a political program, and had inherited from outgoing President Alán García a chaotic economic situation triggered by hyperinflation. Fujimori became a trusted friend of the former C. I. A. agent, and expelled from Peru's military intelligence, who dedicated himself to fighting the Sendero Luminoso leftist guerrillas and the Tupac Amaro. The method used by his adviser Montesinos to maintain the dictatorship was to buy parliamentarians and businessmen, whose transaction was recorded in the famous “vladivideos”, then used to blackmail them and, in this way, have evidence to maintain the dictatorship.

    In 1992 Fujimori ordered the closure of the Congress, and in 1993 he approved the Constitution that, until today, governs Peru. Later, the mafioso dictator Fujimori took refuge in his homeland, Japan, (until now it is believed that he was not born in Peru, but in Japan), and from that country he presented his resignation from the presidency, a document that he sent by fax.

    The purported democratic successors in the top position were as dishonest as Fujimori: Alejandro Toledo, el Cholo, is still in the United States, pending the opinion of extradition on the part of the justice of this country; Alán García, another of the corrupt Presidents opted for the path of suicide for not facing justice; the ex-military, Ollanta Humala and his snobish wife, were several months in jail while investigating their crimes came Pedro Pablo Kuczynski, aka PPK, one of the typical neoliberal scoundrels (several of them were swarming in South America), who resigned before being thus vacated, and succeeded by his Vice president, Martin Vizcarra, considered even more rascal than the President himself, (even, took advantage of the vaccines against the Covid-19 for his own inoculation and members of his family) that, once out of office vacancy, was replaced by the president of the Chamber of Deputies, Manuel Merino, who was expelled by the popular demonstrations, after four days of taking up the position.

    Since 1990 until today, that when will take over the President-elect, Pedro Castillo, the Republic of Peru has had only corrupted Presidents, to which must be added the three nominations to the Presidency of the Republic of Keiko Fujimori, who, fortunately, has come in second place at her third attempt, whose fate seems to being condemned to 30 years in prison for various crimes, including money laundering and conspiracy.

    So far, the Acting President Sagasti is considered to be honest, and hopefully the new President, Pedro Castillo, who will be empowered on July 28, is honest.

    Castillo President and the possibility of Peru adopting a socialist economic model, 27.07.2021.

    LIMA (Sputnik) - The president-elect of Peru, Pedro Castillo, appeared in the first round as the outsider nobody saw coming, but also as a politician with a radical discourse upholding the ideology of his party, Peru Libre (Free Peru), self-defined by its founder, Vladimir Cerrón, as a Marxist-Leninist.

    Between the first and second rounds (April 11 and June 6), the chances of Castillo winning generated alarm in private business and citizen sectors that reject the socialism that the candidate originally announced, with a statist policy and expropriations of companies and natural resources, in particular those granted in the mining sector.

    However, the campaign Castillo for the second round appeared as a distinct politician. With oscillating economic ideas, he summoned Peruvian economist Pedro Francke as his advisor. Francke, a personality who has developed in the private sphere, was also an advisor in the first round of Juntos por el Perú (Jointly for Peru), a moderate leftist party.

    Said and done

    With Francke as spokesman for the economic direction of an eventual Castillo government, fears subsided within sectors opposed to a socialist model. Thus, the economist began to "mend the plan" to the original ideas of Peru Libre.

    "Fact is that there's a very clear signal: there will be no expropriations, no nationalizations, we will not take your property or savings from anyone," Francke said in an interview with the local television station, Canal N, on June 11.

    By then, Castillo had not yet been proclaimed president, so it can be understood that in the face of the campaign of his rival, Keiko Fujimori, of Fuerza Popular (right), who sought to "save" the country from "communism", the leftist sought to moderate his speech.

    Now, was this moderation an electoral maneuver or an honest intention of a politician who reconsidered originally extreme proposals that also involved the closure of the Constitutional Court or the Ombudsman's Office?

    Should one believe the Castle of the first round or the Castle of the second round? In his words, Castillo reaffirmed what Francke said, at least in its essence.

    "We're not Chavistas, nor communists, we are not extremists," Castillo said during the ceremony of presentation of credentials for the Presidency on July 23, something that reaffirmed his refusal to nationalize the economy or carry out expropriations, manifested in numerous campaign acts prior to the ballot.

    On the other hand, Francke rejected the introduction of a socialist model with price control, putting a little calm to what business fears: that the Executive does not respect the autonomy of the Central Reserve Bank.

    Infighting in Peru Libre

    "The Central Reserve Bank economics will be respected because it has done a good job of keeping inflation low, "Francke said, also defining that the government intends to propose a" popular market economy, "which has been defined as"a model of free action by private enterprise, but with a greater redistributive component by the State."

    This model would bring Peru closer to models similar to that of Bolivia or Ecuador under Rafael Correa, but in no way to a current Venezuelan style model, which has been disqualified in its effectiveness by Francke.

    Can those in Peru who fear the implementation of a socialist model breathe easy? Maybe. It happens that in the interior of Free Peru there is a struggle between Castillo and the founder, Vladimir Cerrón, a man who not only manifests ideas of the extreme left through his social networks, but is serving a suspended prison sentence for corruption crimes.

    Cerrón was found guilty of personally benefiting from a sanitation work when he served as governor of the department of Junín (centro) between 2011 and 2014; and his statements as leader of Free Peru not only cast doubt on the moderation of the government plan, but on who will effectively govern the country. Is Castillo just Cerrón's "political figurehead"?

    For his part, Francke has not been announced as the next head of the Ministry of Economy, so his presence within the government would deserve a reassuring official ratification for those fearful of a socialism of the 21st century. Even with the president already proclaimed, the economic course is uncertain for a country with a poverty that reaches 30% of its population.

    Venezuela Welcomes Pedro Castillo’s Victory in Peru, Seeks Bilateral Cooperation

    Venezuela celebrated the victory of Pedro Castillo Terrones in Peru’s recent presidential election, pledging to work with his new government on a bilateral and regional agenda.

    “A new political cycle is opening that we hope will be successful for this South American nation. The people of Venezuela embrace you, brothers and sisters,” stated President Nicolás Maduro via Twitter.

    The president’s message was echoed by the foreign ministry, which praised the “massive participation” in the electoral contest that opened a “new political cycle.”

    “The Bolivarian Government of Venezuela expresses its firm will to work hand-in-hand with the new government of Peru, in order to develop a bilateral relationship of comprehensive cooperation,” its statement read.

    The Peruvian National Jury of Elections (JNE) officially declared Pedro Castillo the president-elect on Monday after reviewing and dismissing a series of complaints submitted by his far-right rival that alleged widespread fraud. The complaints by Popular Force, led by Keiko Fujimori, were roundly criticized for lacking merit. After being declared the winner, Castillo called on Fujimori to desist from her obstructionist tactics.

    The issue of Venezuela became a feature in the presidential race, with right-wing figures and defeated candidate Fujimori campaigning against “communism” and claiming Peru would end up like Venezuela in the event of a Castillo win. Regional right-wing leaders even accused Caracas of meddling in the election in favor of Castillo, an accusation flatly rejected by Venezuela.

    The victory of Castillo—who ran on behalf of a party that is self-described as Marxist and advocates for a progressive nationalist development agenda aimed at redistributing the country’s wealth to the poor—is also expected to dramatically reorient the country’s foreign policy.

    Bilateral relations between Caracas and Lima grew strained after successive right-wing Peruvian governments played a leading role to promote regime-change efforts in Venezuela. The countries pushing to oust Maduro from power came to be known as the Lima Group, after their first conference was held in the Peruvian capital in August, 2017.

    The influence of the Lima Group has waned over recent years as voters in countries such as Mexico and Argentina replaced right-wing leaders with progressive presidents. Argentina formally withdrew from the bloc earlier this year, while Mexico has abstained from participating in meetings and has not signed onto its recent declarations.

    Castillo said on the campaign trail that he would withdraw from the bloc as well, and committed to “deactivating” the Lima Group within the first 100 days in office; a move that would render the ad hoc alliance moribund.

    Meanwhile, leftist regional leaders and organizations such as the Puebla Group and ALBA-TCP, issued statements celebrating the former schoolteacher’s victory.

    “The arrival of President Castillo adds to the progressive winds that blow over the region that began with the election of Presidents López Obrador in Mexico and Alberto Fernández in Argentina, which continued with the reestablishment of democracy in Bolivia, with the arrival of Luis Arce and the election of the Constituent Assembly in Chile and will surely be ratified in next year's elections in Brazil and Colombia,” read the communiqué by the Puebla Group.

    The ALBA-TCP bloc said it viewed his victory with “great hope” and an opportunity to strengthen links between the peoples of the region.

    Castillo, who won on a slim margin and will have to deal with a divided Congress, will take office on July 28.

    Pedro Castillo announces referendum proposal for change of Constitution in Peru, 28.07.2021.

    LIMA (Sputnik) - Pedro Castillo announced during his first speech as president of Peru the presentation of a bill to call a referendum for the change of Constitution.

    "Anouncement to be presented to the Congress of the Republic, while scrupulously respecting the procedure of constitutional reform provided for in article 206 of the Constitution, a bill to reform after being analyzed and discussed by the parliament, we hope that it will be approved, and then subjected to ratification by popular referendum," said the head of State during his first message to the country as head of State.

    In his speech from the seat of the Congress and in front of the Plenary of the parliament, Castillo indicated that the eventual Constituent Assembly that drafts a new magna carta "must be plurinational, popular and with gender parity in its composition".

    The president also pointed out that the indigenous peoples, the Afro-Peruvian community, as well as the unions of popular organizations and trade unions should have representatives in the Assembly.

    Castillo argued that the current Constitution, drafted in 1993, during the Government of former president Alberto Fujimori (1990-2000), "not emanated from the will of the people", saying that it enables foreign companies in the mining sector contracts in which the State is at a disadvantage.

    "This is one of the main reasons that forces us to seek a new Constitution that, among other things, allows us to adapt the contracts [with the mining companies] to the changing circumstances of the international market, guaranteeing the State's income," the president said.

    On this July 28, Castillo assumed the presidency for the period 2021-2026, on a date in which Peru is celebrating the bicentenary of its independence.

    President Castillo's social integration diplomacy began in Ayacucho, by Esteban Silva Cuadra for Chilean leftist outlet El Clarín. 04.08.2021.

    At the ceremony of transmission of command held at the Torre de Tagle palace (headquarters of the traditional Peruvian chancellery), Héctor Béjar Rivera, social fighter, sociologist with a vast academic career, assumed as chancellor of President Pedro Castillo Terrones.

    In defining the new axes and international priorities of the new government, the minister pointed out that the new foreign policy of the government of Pedro Castillo will promote the active participation of the Peruvian people in it, pointing out that with the new Peruvian diplomacy enters "the powerful and immortal spirit of Javier Heraud" (poet who was his combat partner in the guerrilla of the National Liberation Army). "With him also enter the Andes of our peasant world, the hills and deserts where the poor of Lima live, the rondas of Cajamarca, the peasants, the miners, the street workers, the women of the common pots, the domestic workers, along with all the poor, humiliated, offended and marginalized."

    In his historic speech, Béjar put the priority emphasis on the need to project social diplomacy to face the great problems that affect humanity today, raising the urgency of deepening international cooperation between peoples and States to fight the Covid-19 pandemic and ensure universal access to vaccines and treatments.

    Defining the main axes and priorities of the new Social Diplomacy of Peru in the region and in the Latin world and the world at the bilateral and multilateral level, characterizing it as a national, autonomous, democratic and social diplomacy:

    "National, because it will be inspired by national history and reality. In the cultural and ethnic plurality of Peru in function of national interests".
    "Autonomous, because decisions will be made according to the collective interests of the Nation. Emphasizing that autonomy and independence will be an essential principle of the new Peruvian diplomacy."
    "Democratic, because democracy and the rule of law, as a political system and organization of society, guarantee the human rights of the Peruvian people and the collective will to realize their own destiny. A democratic society with social inclusion, with the elimination of racism, the protection of minorities and indigenous peoples and all vulnerable sectors of society, and their access to power, also means promoting the democratization of regional and global governance."
    "Social, as it will be the external expression of internal social policy to defend and protect the rights and aspirations of all Peruvians, noting that: "Priority will be given to social diplomacy in bilateral and multilateral relations."

    Behar noted that the multilateral diplomacy of the new peruvian government will be guided by "the pursuit of peace, intercultural dialogue, the defense of the principle of peaceful settlement of disputes, respect for the principle of non-intervention, the cooperation for the sustainable development, the protection of the health of the planet and international justice.»

    Latin America and the Caribbean integration as a priority:

    "We will work for the integration of Latin America and the Caribbean. Latin America is and will be the geographical and sociological priority of foreign policy. It is our immediate, territorial, historical, economic, social and cultural environment. The space of our own history."
    Latin American integration and cooperation without ideological distinctions.

    "We will strengthen Latin American integration and cooperation, without ideological distinctions. We will revalue the Andean Community in its economic, commercial, social, cultural and physical integration spatial dimensions."

    "The independence of Latin America was a feat of political unity in the region. The creation of the new States brought Latin American citizenship, which was later lost with the consolidation of national identities. But hope and the will for unity continued to open up spaces in the nineteenth century. And Peru took the most important initiatives to create a Latin American organization by convening the American congresses of 1826, 1847 and 1864. He also did so by vigorously opposing foreign interventions in Santo Domingo and Mexico."

    "In that historic tradition, in 2005 Peru completed that process by taking the initiative to create the South American Community of Nations in Cusco, later transformed into UNASUR. It was the culmination of Bolívar's dream, of Gregorio Paz Soldán and Toribio Pacheco."

    Reconstituting the UNASUR

    "In the bicentennial year we will be consistent and consistent with this historical tradition of Peruvian diplomacy and we will withdraw from Congress the request for Peru to denounce the treaty that instituted UNASUR. On the contrary, we will promote its reconstitution and modernization, as the organization of cooperation and consultation that affirms in this global world the proper entity of South America in world politics".

    Peru's foreign Minister resigns after controversial statements on terrorism, 17.08.2021.

    LIMA (Sputnik) - Peruvian Foreign Minister Héctor Béjar resigned from office after the scandal caused by statements he gave about the terrorist group Sendero Luminoso and the role played by the Navy in that phenomenon, local radio RPP reported.

    "Foreign Minister Héctor Béjar has presented his resignation after his controversial statements on terrorism and the Peruvian Navy were made public," the news media said on its website.

    RPP quotes sources from the Foreign Ministry, although previously the prime minister, Guido Bellido, indicated in his Twitter account that “changes for the march of the country” would be made, something that would allude to Béjar's departure.

    On August 15, a local television program recently broadcasted statements by the foreign minister, before he took office, in which he stated that " terrorism in Peru was initiated by the Navy, and that can be demonstrated historically."

    In Peru, the phenomenon of terrorism is understood as the emergence, in 1980, of the Maoist terrorist organization Sendero Luminoso.

    Béjar also claimed that the Navy had been " trained for that by the CIA( US Central Intelligence Agency)" and that "[Sendero Luminoso] has been largely the work of the CIA, " although he acknowledged that he had no way of proving his claims.
    Sendero Luminoso still exists with small remnants in southern Peru and is responsible for the deaths of 31,000 to 37,000 people during 1980 to 2000, in its attempt to take power by arms.

    Soon after the controversial statements of the foreign minister, various opposition benches and sectors of the citizenry demanded his resignation.

    Also, on August 16, the Navy issued a statement rejecting what Béjar said.

    The resigning foreign minister took office on July 29, a day after the inauguration of President Pedro Castillo, who came to power by the Peru Libre party (left).

    Peru approves extension of former dictator Alberto Fujimori's extradition request from Chile for arms trafficking, 18.08.2021.

    LIMA (Sputnik) — The Government of Peru approved the extension of Chile's extradition request for former President Alberto Fujimori (1990-2000), for the alleged crime of arms trafficking in favor of the FARC defunct guerrilla Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia.

    "The supreme resolution approving the request for the extension of the active extradition of Alberto Fujimori to be extradited from Chile and prosecuted in Peru, for alleged commission of illegal supply of weapons and others proposed by the Ministry of Justice, was approved," said Prime Minister, Guido Bellido, in a conference.

    Fujimori, who is serving a 25-year prison sentence in Peru for crimes against humanity committed during his tenure, was extradited in 2007 from Chile.

    However, the extradition dossier issued by the Peruvian State did not include the crime of arms trafficking allegedly committed by Fujimori on behalf of the FARC during his term of office.

    If Chile agrees to extend extradition to include that offence, the former head of State may be prosecuted and eventually convicted.

    Uncertainty in Peru: the chief of ministers calls for the vote of confidence of Congress in a tense day on which the Castillo government depends, 26/08/2021.

    If parliamentarians vote against, a new institutional crisis will be unleashed.

    The Prime Minister of Peru, Guido Bellido, requested Thursday before the plenary of Congress the vote of confidence of the legislators to the cabinet of President Pedro Castillo in a day full of tension and uncertainty, since the rejection will plunge the country again into an institutional crisis.

    "I come to invite you to settle our differences," Bellido called in a speech that lasted almost three hours and had a conciliatory tone, knowing that the continuity of the incipient government of Castillo, who took office only last July 28, depends on the decision made by the congressmen.

    "I know that you will be able to take up this popular cry: no more conflicts. Peru and its people come first. This government seeks to understand the difficulties and also build bridges with Parliament to unify great national objectives and present our willingness to work together to move the country forward through dialogue," he said.

    The Peruvian legislation establishes that the presidential cabinet needs the vote of confidence of Congress, since, otherwise, the proposed officials can not assume and the President on duty has to make new appointments.

    LIMA (Spuntnik) - Attorney and former president of Congress Mirtha Vasquez was sworn in as prime Minister of Peru in a ceremony held at the Government Palace in Lima (centro), following the resignation of her predecessor, Guido Bellido.

    "For God's sake, for this country of women and men who every day struggle to live for dignity, without discrimination and who promote real change. yes, I swear, " Vásquez said during the protocol ceremony before President Pedro Castillo.

    Bellido's administration, which lasted just over two months, was characterized by confrontations with Congress and contradictions with the president himself.

    Vásquez is a lawyer and served as head of Congress from November 2020 until July 28, 2021, that is to say throughout the transitional government of former president Francisco Sagasti that was succeeded by Castillo.

    The appointment of Vásquez implies the formation of a new Ministerial Cabinet, whose members were later sworn in.

    In the new cabinet were ratified by the holder of the portfolio of Foreign Affairs, Oscar Maúrtua; the minister of Economy, Pedro Francke; the Justice, Aníbal Torres; the Health, Hernando Cevallos; as well as Defence, Agriculture, Foreign Trade and Tourism, Housing, Transport, and Communications, Women's, Environmental, and Social Inclusion.
