European Union reiterates strong willingness to strengthen ties with Peru

00:09 | Lima, Mar. 26.

The European Union (EU) said it acknowledges Martin Vizcarra's assumption of the Presidency of Peru and reiterated its firm willingness to keep on strengthening ties with the Inca country.

In a statement released by EU Member States' ambassadors and head of delegation, the organization also reiterated its commitment to continue promoting topics of common interest between Peru and the EU.

"The European Union acknowledges [former] President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski's resignation, which was accepted by the Congress of the Republic, as well as First Vice-President Martin Vizcarra Cornejo's assumption of Presidency, within the framework of institutionalism and principles embodied in the Constitution," it affirmed.

As is known, Martin Vizcarra officially took office last Friday as Peru's new Constitutional President of the Republic, thus replacing Pedro Pablo Kuczynski, who stepped down amid a political crisis.

While addressing the nation, the high-ranking government official called on all sectors to work together to emerge from the political crisis, as well as build a dream in favor of the Andean country's well-being. 

"There is no time to lose," he noted on the occasion.
