Peruvian Prime Minister Salvador del Solar on Wednesday affirmed
and maintain it in order to give the Islay Province (Arequipa region) population peace of mind.
Likewise, the cabinet chief indicated ultimatums do not build anything or reverse administrative processes in a democratic State.
According to Del Solar, the government considers that development can be supported by diverse productive activities such as fishing, farming, and mining. Thus, dialogue will help define the development strategy for Valle del Tambo residents.
However, Executive Branch spokespersons warned that —even though the license has been issued— this does not mean the mining company can begin operations. It needs to earn —through dialogue
— a social license first.
For its part, the mining company
committed itself not to start operations before setting up a dialogue space to resolve social concerns.
