10:29 | Lima, Jan. 11.

President Martin Vizcarra affirmed an illegitimate and dictatorial regime has been imposed on Venezuela, referring to Nicolas Maduro's administration, who was sworn into a new term in office on Thursday.

"We raise our voices in protest to defend democracy in Latin America," the Head of State said via Twitter last night.

Furthermore, the Foreign Affairs Ministry announced that Peru has recalled its Charge d'Affaires to Venezuela, First Secretary Rosa Alvarez Nuñez.

However, Foreign Affairs Minister Nestor Popolizio recognized that cutting diplomatic relations with a neighboring nation is always an option when faced to an illegitimate regime.
