Peruvian Foreign Affairs Minister Ricardo Luna and Canadian counterpart Chrystia Freeland requested —on behalf of the Lima Group— that the United Nations contribute to addressing the Venezuelan crisis.
The request was addressed to UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres following the Lima Group meeting
held on October 26 in Toronto (Canada).
In its latest meeting, the Lima Group agreed
that it is time to seek the engagement of the global organization in efforts to end the deteriorating situation in the Bolivarian nation.
The Lima Group
is composed of Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Peru, Panama and Paraguay.
In this sense, priorities for the Inca country include sustainable peace. Thus, Minister Luna held a meeting with UN General Assembly President Miroslav Lajcák during which the officials shared their concerns about Venezuela's situation.
