Mexico City, Mexico — Mexico says they will maintain representation in Peru despite Peru’s Ambassador being withdrawn from Mexico. Over the weekend, the SRE released a statement regarding the recent announcement made by the government of Peru.
In their statement, the Ministry of Foreign Relations (SRE) said “The Government of Mexico, through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, regrets the decision of the current government of the Republic of Peru to reduce the level of diplomatic relations between the two countries to that of Chargé d’Affaires and permanently withdraw Ambassador Manuel Gerardo Talavera, who was called for consultations on December 15, 2022.
“The Government of Mexico will maintain its level of diplomatic and consular representation to promote ties between our peoples and provide care to the Mexican community in Peru, while reiterating its conviction to keep diplomatic communication channels open for the benefit of both societies.
“Likewise, it hopes that a democratic agreement will soon be reached to the disagreements that prevail in this sister Latin American country.”
