Pedro Castillo revives old conflicts before the UN | Chancery | The Falklands | Palestine | Escazu | POLITICS

In his speech before the General Assembly of the United Nations, President peter castle took the reins of Peruvian foreign policy and imprudently compromised the country’s position in old conflicts such as the Malvinas and the controversy between Palestine and Israel.

“Peru fully recognizes the sovereign rights of the Argentine Republic in the Malvinas Islands and we demand that the parties start consultations and negotiations to achieve this imperative objective,” he said in his speech before the representatives of 193 member states.

Although Peru’s position has always been in favor of Argentina in the war it had against the United Kingdom over the Malvinas Islands 40 years ago, currently no event has occurred that could spark discussion on this issue.

For this reason, Ambassador Carlos Pareja specified to Peru21 that although Peru supported the start of negotiations during these 40 years, he described this statement as nonsense. “The government should have taken into account the consequences that it is going to have on its relations with Great Britain,” he pointed out.

Former Vice Chancellor Eduardo Ponce agreed that although Torre Tagle’s historical position has not changed, “launching this type of manifesto at the United Nations is perhaps more noisy than necessary and is not exactly the most positive thing.”

In that sense, he maintained that Pedro Castillo’s statements “are detrimental to our position with the United Kingdom, which is an increasingly important relationship.”

“This has the objective of getting closer to the Government of Alberto Fernández, of a Peronist nature, which is a government close to the countries of the Castro-Chavista axis,” added Ponce.

Foreign Minister César Landa declared on Channel N that this mention was due to the fact that “the president has reaffirmed the main lines of foreign policy and this comes even from the Malvinas conflict.”

The president also announced that he will soon open a Peruvian diplomatic representation in Palestine and considered it “essential” to find a solution to the conflict, based on an “independent and viable Palestine, and an Israel with secure borders.”

Former Deputy Foreign Minister Ponce said that this type of mention “can lead us to undesirable conflicts” and stressed that Peru’s relationship with that country is currently quite important and positive.

“The economic relationship with Israel is pragmatically more important than the relationship with Palestine, which has ideological and political elements that do not occur with Israel. It is a political element to take into account, ”she limited.

Ambassador Pareja rather described it as an act of “reciprocity”, since the Palestinian government has a resident ambassador in Peru.


On the other hand, the head of state rectified Torre Tagle’s position and was in favor of the Escazú agreement. A couple of weeks ago, the Foreign Ministry stated the opposite under the leadership of Miguel Rodríguez Mackay.

Another change of direction was to ratify that Peru reestablished diplomatic relations with the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic and that it firmly supported its right to self-determination.

Time was also given to call for a ceasefire in Ukraine.
