Peru assumed on the presidency of the Andean Community of Nations (CAN) on Tuesday, May 29, in the context of the 42 Meeting of the Andean Council of Foreign Ministers of the four member countries (aforementioned Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador, and Colombia), informed Telesur.
The CAN rotates its presidency every year in alphabetical order of the member states, so this time it was up to Peru to assume for the period 2018-2019.
During the ceremony at the CAN headquarters in Lima, Peruvian Foreign Minister, Néstor Popolizio, said that a meeting would be held in July with the representatives of each country to elect the replacement of the secretary general, Walker San Miguel from Bolivia.
This integration process began with the signing of the Cartagena Agreement on May 26, 1969.
