Peru and Venezuela Dispute


Peruvian President Alejandro Toledo indicated that if Venezuela continues its aggressive and insulting dialogue against Peru he will ask that Venezuela withdraw its ambassador from Lima.

Toledo also stated that Peru will bring this case to the Organization of American States (OAS) as Peru considers the remarks and opinions given by President Hugo Chávez and his advisors against Peru as contradictory to the charter of this continental organization.

“My government has withdrawn our ambassador from Venezuela, but if they continue their insults, I will ask that the Venezuelan ambassador leave Peru”, stated Toledo.
