Peru's Prime Minister Pedro Angulo on Monday morning affirmed that the declaration of a state of emergency will be in force in areas where conflict situations have emerged.

In an interview with Red de Comunicacion Regional (RCR), the Cabinet chief explained that those areas include Apurimac, Chala (Arequipa), and a part of Ica. 

In addition, Mr. Angulo underscored that the situation in other areas is being monitored.

The high-ranking official remarked that State ministers will be deployed to the regions, noting that the decision on whether to send Cabinet members to each one of them will be made today. 

Moreover, the Prime Minister said that he will have to stay in the Peruvian capital, Lima, to appear before Congress, following an invitation to address this issue.

Likewise, he called on all citizens to consider that the Government of President Dina Boluarte provides the opportunity to create stability, as she has called on people with experience in good governance and development, and those who are against corruption.

In this sense, Mr. Angulo stated that he expects reciprocity from citizens and violence to decrease. 

"We call for social peace, we call for reflection, we are all Peruvians, and we all have the same purpose. The President is aware of the vulnerable situation of many regions, including many citizens who have been poorly served and ignored, who often lacked the support from the State," he said.
