Mexico City, Mexico — President Andrés Manuel López Obrador says he plans to travel to Peru on December 14 to attend the Summit of the Pacific Alliance. López Obrador said the Summit was suspended in Mexico City at the end of November due to the absence of the Peruvian president, Pedro Castillo, due to political conflicts in that country.
In a morning press conference, the President explained that in Peru, he will meet with the presidents of Chile, Gabriel Boric Font, from Ecuador, Guillermo Lasso Mendoza and from Colombia, Gustavo Petro Urrego, whose invitation has yet to be confirmed.
“The president of Chile would meet in Peru. I don’t know if the president of Colombia, the president of Peru, Pedro Castillo, and the president of Ecuador, Lasso, have already been invited, but we would attend.
“I would go to that meeting because we are going to hand over the presidency of the Pacific Alliance to Pedro Castillo,” he reported.
This consensus, he said, was achieved after a consultation carried out by President Boric Font with his Peruvian counterpart.
