Del Castillo remarked that that journalistic report is an infamy and that it has been vehemently rejected by president Garcia and even by congresswoman Keiko Fujimori, Alberto Fujimori’s daughter, who, according to the article, supposedly would have met in private with the current Chief of State.
“It is absurd to even think that the president of Peru would have tried to prevent or to overthrow a ruling of the Chilean Supreme Court”, he said.
Peruvian Defense Minister Alan Wagner said “the diplomatic relations with Chile cannot be ifluenced by journalistic information”. He also stated that he doesn’t believe the article had something to do with a recent maritime border dispute that was recently nourished by a Chilean government resolution.
Wagner stated the Peruvian position to its territorial limits with the Chile is clear and the subject of maritime boundaries is about to determine itself. He hopes that it is solved through diplomatic channels, through international treaties and the law.
