The Secretary of Foreign Relations (SRE), Marcelo Ebrard Casaubon, revealed why Mexico has not ruled on the new government of Peru, after the former constitutional president, Pedro Castillowas dismissed by the Congress of that country.

It was after the meeting that Mexico held with a delegation from the United States, headed by President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) — within the framework of bicentennial of diplomatic relations between both nations— That the foreign minister was questioned about the role of Peru in the new projects designed for Latin America.

Ebrard expressed that the subject was not delved into, although it was mentioned, but it was not the central axis of the meeting. The meeting discussed the 200 years of diplomacy between neighboring countries, as well as some proposals that the Mexican president will make to Joe Biden on his next visit to Mexico in January.

In this sense, the foreign minister expressed that Peru is indeed a fundamental issue for the current government; however, he indicated that Mexico has not issued its recognition to the new government because “Our tradition is not one of recognition.”

“We do not recognize or do not recognize; You know, our tradition is not one of recognition, and neither is the relationship with Peru… well, it just continues, it is not up to us to recognize a government

He also assured that the current situation in the South American country is of concern to the López Obrador administration due to the instability that is being experienced, in addition to the fact that —he assured— AMLO considers the president Pedro Castillo as “a good man, a good person.”

Regarding the transfer of the pro tempore presidency of the Pacific alliancewhich López Obrador would deliver to Castillo Terrones this month in Lima, Peru, Ebrard stated that it could take place in January.

“We have to consult with the other countriesbecause it was agreed to postpone it to see how the country evolves and I would suppose that in January, well, the foreign ministers will discuss it to reach an agreement and once they start their term, “he explained.

For his part, a few days ago, the Mexican president questioned the reasons for the dismissal of Pedro Castillodespite the fact that legislators from Peru asked López Obrador not to interfere in the internal affairs of his country.

“Why don’t they like Castillo? Because he is a teacher from a town in the highlands of Peru, he is not a fifi. So, they have never accepted it, because they they like democracy when it suits theme”, he expressed, while assuring that they are only opinions, not intervention.

However, he was not the only president who sent his support to the former Peruvian executive, as the presidents of Colombia, Argentina, and Bolivia expressed their “deep concern over the recent events that resulted in the removal and detention” of Castillo.
