Peruvian President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski on Saturday morning returned to Princeton University, his alma matter, and highlighted the prestigious education center.

While addressing participants during the "A New Age for Latin America" lecture, the President praised the American institution.

"There's no university that does more for its alumni or whose alumni do more for it than Princeton," Mr. Kuczynski expressed.

The Head of State will also receive the James Madison medal on campus during today's Alumni Day activities.

As is known, the 78-year-old earned a Master's in Public Affairs in 1961 from Princeton's Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs.

The Peruvian delegation in the U.S. is composed of Foreign Affairs Minister Ricardo Luna, a former ambassador who also attended Princeton (Class of '62).

This event comprises activities linked to his U.S. trip, including meetings with U.S. President Donald Trump and United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres held last Friday.
