The OAS will address the situation in Peru in an extraordinary session this Monday

Madrid.- The Permanent Council of the Organization of American States (OAS) has convened an extraordinary session for this Monday to discuss the situation in Peru and the recent wave of protests, as reported by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Ana María Gervasi.

Gervasi explained that the session will be held at the request of Colombia and in it they will present the efforts of the Government “to overcome this complex political crisis that we have been going through since December 7 of last year,” according to the RPP radio station.

On the other hand, the Andean parliamentarian Luis Galarreta sent a letter to Foreign Minister Gervasi so that, in her capacity as president of the Andean Council of Ministers of Foreign Affairs, she convenes the Andean Presidential Council to “evaluate the subregional integration process.”

Galarreta has criticized the “unacceptable interference of some heads of state of member countries of the Andean Community, as is the case of Bolivia and Colombia.” Thus, he has requested that the application of Decision 878 of the Andean Community be evaluated, that is, “the suspension of the migratory flow between Peru and Bolivia.”

On December 7, the protests against the interim president, Dina Boluarte, began, in which some 60 people have already died, according to unofficial data, and the protests, demonstrations and roadblocks continue.
