Peru to promote anticorruption measures at Summit of the Americas

10:16 | Washington D.C. (U.S.), Jan. 30.

Foreign Affairs Minister Cayetana Aljovin ended his working visit to Washington D.C. aimed at informing international organizations and civil society of Peru's preparations for ensuring a successful 8th edition of the Summit of the Americas next April in Lima.

During the gathering, both Aljovin and Almagro agreed to strengthen the existing institutional mechanisms to promote specific results, beyond the formal declarations of the Summit.

"This visit has allowed us to ratify the region's interest in the Summit's theme, which —on this occasion— centers on democratic governance against corruption," she expressed.

Additionally, the two authorities agreed to boost institutional strengthening and dialogue between member countries in the region, as part of a 21st-century multilateral agenda. 

Almagro also announced his intention to pay an official visit to Peru in the near future.

On the other hand, Aljovin intends to continue fostering rapprochement with other leaders in the region so as to ensure the success of the Summit in Peru.
She will meet with U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on February 5 in Lima to discuss mechanisms that deliver concrete and tangible results in favor of countries in the Western Hemisphere.
