Prime Minister Anibal Torres on Friday called on opposition groups to work in unity with the Government for the benefit of the country.

While opening the 11th Decentralized Council of Ministers session in Pasco region, the high-ranking official pointed out that "the political struggle must end; we are not campaigning."

"I call on the opposition to take a step towards unity for the sake of our country," Torres said.

Likewise, the Cabinet chief affirmed that "we are facing difficult situations" in Peru; thus, he called on State-run instances to join efforts.

Furthermore, Torres indicated that the objective of this ministerial meeting "is to address the problems which afflict this area."

In this sense, he directly asked Transportation and Communications Minister Nicolas Bustamante "to meet the demands for improvement and construction of highways, and to take the Highway to Lima forward through the Canta – Huayllay Road."

The Prime Minister also asked Housing, Construction and Sanitation Minister Geiner Alvarado "to pay close attention to projects in Pasco district," and Foreign Trade-Tourism Minister Roberto Sanchez "to work with the Amazonian provinces of Pasco in order to strengthen tourism, as well as coffee and cacao exports."

State ministers and local authorities will be joined by President Pedro Castillo later today.
