Peru recalls ambassador from Venezuela permanent link   8 comments
The Peruvian government will withdraw his ambassador from Venezuela, due to the constant interferences by president Hugo Chávez in Peruvian politics, officials from the Ministry of Foreign Relations announced. This decision will become official in the next hours.
In the evening, Peru emitted a note of protest regarding the declarations of Chávez in relation to the ongoing electoral process.
Today, the Venezuelan president continued with his insults and described current president Alexander Toledo and Alan Garcia as "caymans from the same swamp".

Garcia may be making a good move in electoral strategy by picking a "fight" with Chavez and Morales, but for the future, it is a massive blunder. Peru needs to stop whining about "interference" into their affairs, because nations do it to other nations all the time. So, what if Chavez wants Humala to win. He can say that. Hopefully this confortation will be resolved between Chavez and Garcia if Garcia does win.

I am glad Flores is defeated and out. I was orginally actually wanting Garcia to win the runoff, but now I am for Humala. Even though his past may be shady, I want Humala to win. Peru needs someone that can work with its neighbors. I thought Alan Garcia could do it, like the other center-left candidates and even Uribe can. But by picking fights with other leaders to try to get an edge on Humala, he is jepordizing future relations with those countries. Regional intergration is more important than some supposed "authoriarianism".

No, not really, Venezuela was hidding Montesinos for a couple of years (if not longer) before Peru found out and made it public, and again there was trouble in paradise, don't you remember?? it won't be the first time...

That "gorilla" has managed to turn Venezuela's economy around, drop poverty and illiteracy, increased education, dropped unemployment, and increased access to health care all across his country. What is so bad about him? His "demogogory"....Or that he is a strong politican who has been doing well and has support of his people while the whiny opposition has been crushed democratically election after election and has resulted to undemocratic means only to fail that way anyway. Chavez has EARNED his influence, an influence that has spread throughout Latin America.

Mr. Garcia should envy Chavez, afterall, Garcia should look at his own record as presidency...a really disasterous one in the 80's. He is in no position to talk or pick fights. And if he continues to talk and wins the presidency, he will find himself and Peru cut off of oil from Venezuela. Uribe doesn't pick fights with Chavez, he works with him.

I now support Ollanta Humala in this election, despite what actions he may of done in the past.

why do all Chavez/Humala supporters have to hide their identity?? Afraid of something? It's not just here, they prefer to remain anonymous all over the blog-o-sphere.
At least you should be so polite and give us a fake name so others can refer your to comments by addressing you directly. But I guess that's too much to ask.

In response to the last comment:

So you think Chavez is slowly turning Venezuela into the "land of milk and honey"? Where did you get this impression, what is it based on, what sources do you have? Do you currently live in Venezuela?
Have you ever been there for an extended period of time to be able to give your own eye-witness account?
I don't know.

Well, I have never been there. I don't believe the propaganda spread by Ven. state-controlled television nor the press. BTW, I didn't believe the "Pravda" or "Neues Deutschland" either some 20 years ago and, in retrospect, that was a good decision.

I've seen photos from today's Caracas, I've read Venezuelan "eye-witness" reports, and they all suggest quite the opposite. That things are going "south" over there. That small and medium-sized businesses are being destroyed because they cannot compete with the now state-controlled and subsidized companies.
Everything has flip side, my friend. For every blooming flower you paint, I can show you a big foot trampling on another.

One reason why Uribe doesn't pick fights with Chavez because he is already elected (2002) and to stay quiet these days and focus on Colombia's problems is the smart thing to do.
Chavez doesn't pick Colombia for his rhetoric interferences and threats simply because of timing. Because of the elections in Peru and to support Humala. If there were elections in Colombia instead of Peru, we wouldn't even be talking about Peru.

This is for anonymous: you have no idea of what you're talking about. If you lived in Venezuela you'd see things very differently. Don't believe in the crap you read in sites like VIO and such.

I don't think that Chavez is a "gorilla" but a sick man who is driving his people to an uncertain destiny.

Venezuela is not the land of milk and honey just because of Chavez.
