Peru's President conveys concern and idea on where OAS should be heading

15:27 | Washington D.C. (U.S.), Sep. 20.

Permanent Representative of Peru to the Organization of American States (OAS) Harold Forsyth on Monday affirmed that the President of the Republic Pedro Castillo —in his presentation before the OAS Permanent Council— conveyed his concern, view, and idea on where the regional bloc should be heading.

In statements to the press, Forsyth commented that the speech by President Castillo was restrained, adding that his discourse won the applause of the audience.

"It has been a very restrained speech, in which he has conveyed his concern, his view of things, and the idea on where the OAS should be heading," he remarked.

"He addressed the social drama on the issue of health in the Americas. In addition, he has pledged to continue to support the organization," the Permanent Representative of Peru to the OAS told reporters.

This morning, the Head of State participated in the Session of the Permanent Council of the Organization of American States (OAS) in Washington D.C. (U.S.). 

During this activity, the Peruvian leader was accompanied by Foreign Affairs Minister Oscar Maurtua and the Permanent Representative of Peru to the Organization of American States (OAS) Harold Forsyth.

Ambassador Forsyth affirmed that Mr. Castillo's participation at the OAS Permanent Council was successful. On the matter, he mentioned that if a president is overseas, Peruvians should follow such participation with interest, given that this person represents the entire population.

"Ultimately, politics implies discrepancy, democracy entails confrontation, but when overseas, Peruvians should be what we are: one nation," he pointed out.

When asked about the situation of the Group of Lima, Forsyth reiterated that the multilateral body’s life cycle has come to an end.
