The Government of Peru on Tuesday affirmed the Summit of the Americas' success is fully guaranteed, as it stressed that most countries in the region have confirmed their presence at the coming Inter-American meeting.

At a press conference, Peruvian President Martin Vizcarra noted that 33 nations have confirmed their attendance at the summit.

In this sense, the Head of State mentioned Antigua and Barbuda had apologized for not sending a delegation. As is known, Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro was uninvited to the event.

Likewise, he stressed that most nations will be represented by their highest authorities, such as Heads of State and Government.

"This guarantees the success of the summit," said Vizcarra, who was joined by Peruvian Foreign Affairs Minister Nestor Popolizio on the occasion.

The Summit of the Americas will be held in Lima on April 13 and 14, and its main theme will be "Democratic Governance against Corruption."

In this sense, Vizcarra expressed confidence the meeting will contribute to adopting —through consensus— concrete measures to fight this problem, which affects various countries in the region.
