"We welcome the appointment of Carlos Scull as Venezuela's diplomatic representative to Peru made by its Interim President Juan Guaido," the Andean nation's Foreign Affairs Ministry noted via Twitter.
"I thank the President for appointing me as the diplomatic representative to Peru. A responsibility that I take staying committed to democracy
, cessation of usurpation, transitional government, and free elections in Venezuela," Scull said in a Tweet.
"In the same vein, I promise to work with and for the more than 700,000 Venezuelans (in Peru)
who had to leave their country, so that we can reunite with our families there," he added.
Henceforth, the Venezuelan Government —led by Guaido— will have diplomatic representations in Argentina, Canada, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, the United States, Honduras, Panama, and Peru, as well as the Lima Group
