All the countries of the region have shown to agree or disagree about the departure of the former president, Evo Morales, and the seizure of power by the new president of the highland country, Jeanine Áñez Chávez. All except Peru. What happened to President Martín Vizcarra of the Foreign Ministry?
As the former Foreign Minister, Luis Gonzales Posada notes, the President of the Republic seems to be much busier in domestic problems demonstrating a very awkward silence before the international community.
«It is disappointing and strange that Vizcarra and the Foreign Ministry do not support the president of Bolivia,» said the former president of Congress. «We Peruvians deserve an explanation regarding that inexplicable diplomatic silence,» he added.
He has also stressed that the president of the Republic would not have greeted the new president of Bolivia and that he has not shown to agree or not against the sabotage that some other countries have been expressing on the part of openly declared socialist countries such as Venezuela and Cuba.
«[Jeanine Añez Chavez is] A Democrat who faces the sabotage of Evo Morales and his political allies such as Cuba, Nicaragua, and Venezuela. Consequently, he is concerned about diplomatic silence before the international democratic community,» he said.
It should be noted that the fact has surprised Peru in the midst of uncertainty about whether what happened after the closing of the Congress is a coup d’etat or not.
