OAS mission begins contacts by visiting Peruvian president

OAS mission begins contacts by visiting Peruvian president

Lima, Nov 21 (Prensa Latina) An mission from the Organization of American States (OAS) that arrived here to evaluate Peru's political crisis began its work on Monday by meeting President Pedro Castillo, a marathon of contacts with other branches of the Government and various stockholders.

The group, made up of five former foreign ministers and other diplomats from OAS member countries, met behind closed doors with the governing team to know their points of view, although they already expressed them in their request for the mission, which denounces a new type of coup d’état in progress.

On Twitter, President Pedro Castillo said that he was receiving the mission ‘so that they know what is happening in Peru and how some sectors want to endanger the country’s democracy and stability with lies to hit an administration focused on working for progress and equality for all.’

After the meeting at the Government headquarters, the program was to continue with a visit of the mission to the nearby Legislative Palace to meet with the members of the board of directors of the Congress of the Republic, which is in the hands of the opposition.

The extreme opposition sees the OAS mission, in spite of its conservative trajectory, as an obstacle to its objective of ousting Castillo, so it is trying to use accusations of corruption, among other ways.

The different parliamentary benches expected to be heard also in Parliament, but the OAS representation in Lima informed that it will receive them in its hotel, thus generating displeasure in Alejandro Muñante, vice president of the unicameral legislative body.
