President Martin Vizcarra on Monday affirmed that winning the fight against corruption is a national goal and that the progress made by his administration would not have been possible without Peruvian citizens' support.

"We are on the path to remove one of the main obstacles for Peru’s development. This fight wouldn't be possible without the people's support," the Head of State expressed. 

In this sense, the top official underlined the population's mobilization on the streets and squares in favor of a change, noting their demand is just one which is "to get rid of corruption forever."

"If that flame is kept alive, then we have the great opportunity to make a change in history," he added. 

Likewise, President Vizcarra reaffirmed his administration's firm and democratic commitment to boosting reforms aimed at creating a more fair and equal nation that relies on solid, efficient, and trustworthy institutions.   

Moreover, he recalled the true enemies of Peru are corruption, insecurity, and drug-trafficking

Remarks were made during the 100th-anniversary ceremony of the creation of the Peruvian Air Force (FAP). The event was held in Lima.
