This is Trump’s first visit to Latin American as President of the United States.
The Peruvian Congress authorized on Tuesday night the entry of two helicopters and more than 500 US military as security for President Donald Trump, who will attend the Summit of the Americas from April 13 to 14 in Lima.
El Nuevo Herald explained that the military corps consists of 114 troops and 454 members of the Air Force. They will enter with military equipment, weapons and two helicopters and will remain for a total of 18 days.
This is Trump’s first visit to Latin American as President of the United States. It will take place in the context of the VIII Summit of the Americas.
After his stay in Lima, he will travel to Colombia for two days.
The dates in which the military will arrive in Peru have not been made public, but the permit has been issued from April 1 to 18.
Peru has not yet confirmed how many leaders will attend the Summit of the Americas, after the controversy that caused the decision of Lima to exclude from the event the President of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro.
The new Peruvian chancellor said yesterday that Maduro remains uninvited for “impeding free and fair elections in Venezuela”, according to information from El Nuevo Herald.
