Statement on the situation in the Republic of Peru, by the Progressive Alliance of The Americas

The attempted self-coup perpetrated today by the former President of the Republic of Peru, Pedro Castillo, which included the dissolution of the legislative branch, the intervention of the judicial branch and the establishment of a state of siege, damages the liberties and the validity of the political and human rights of all the Peruvian people. In view of these events, we express our condemnation of any attempt to interrupt the constitutional order.

From the Progressive Alliance we strive for the reestablishment of order and constitutional guarantees and we urge the political actors in Peru to seek a democratic and progressive solution that avoids armed confrontation and enables the country to meet its major challenges.

We will monitor developments in Peru and will continue to defend democracy and political dialogue as the mechanism for resolving national and international conflicts.
