Peru PM: Gov't is clearly committed to dialogue

12:36 | Lima, Jul. 11.

Peruvian Prime Minister Salvador del Solar has affirmed the government is clearly committed to dialoguing about the Tia Maria mining project and advocated to find a space for understanding in order to clear the doubts regarding this matter.

In this sense, the high-ranking official reiterated the Executive Branch is willing to talk, without any impositions

According to the Prime Minister, the government maintains its firm willingness to listen to all parties involved and work with the region's authorities for the comprehensive development of the mining project's influence areas. 

However, the official pointed out the mining company has promised not to begin construction, unless there is a favorable environment.

Executive Branch spokespersons warned that —even though the license has been issued— this does not mean the company can start operations. It needs to earn —through dialogue— a social license first.

"We are willing to do so, as always," he said in brief statements to the press at the Government Palace.
