on Tuesday reaffirmed that "Peru has supported and supports all actions aimed at favoring a peaceful, democratic, and constitutional solution to the situation in Venezuela, led by Venezuelans themselves."
"The measures adopted within the framework of the TIAR
should not be understood as an end in themselves, but rather as tools to fulfill the shared principles in the hemispheric sphere and contribute to a peaceful, as well as democratic solution to the Venezuelan crisis," he expressed.
At the event, ministers seek to activate entry and transit restrictions and due diligence measures in financial matters for 27 people associated with the illegitimate regime of Nicolas Maduro
The invocation of the TIAR concerning the Venezuelan crisis began last September during the United Nations General Assembly
, when several nations committed —through a resolution— to identify and sanction the people and entities —linked to illegal activities, corruption, or human rights violations— that are associated with Maduro.
In order to approve any measure, it is necessary for at least 13 —out of the 19 TIAR countries— to vote in favor of the proposal to pressure the Maduro regime
Although the TIAR contemplates the "use of the armed force," that route is not even on the table since the Lima Group countries
have ruled it out and bet on economic and diplomatic measures.
