Peru – Political situation (8 december 2022)


France is closely following the events currently unfolding in Peru, which led to President Castillo’s removal following his attempt to dissolve Congress.

We reject any action that violates the Peruvian Constitution and we reiterate our commitment to democracy and the rule of law. France supports the political, democratic, peaceful solution adopted by Peruvian institutions and calls on all stakeholders to engage in a dialogue that guarantees institutional stability. We call on all stakeholders to remain within the institutional framework.
