Peru President Says Unasur Unable to Resolve Venezuela Crisis

LIMA – Peruvian President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski said on Saturday that international organizations like the Union of South American Nations (Unasur) have not been able to come up with an orderly form of transition for Venezuela nor a satisfactory way to resolve the “humanitarian crisis” of its people.

During a military event in Lima for Armed Forces Day, Kuczynski said he would deal with Venezuela’s plight when he meets this Monday in Colombia with other leaders of the region, who will be on hand for the signing of the Final Peace Pact with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC.

The Peruvian president said he will speak with his counterparts from Chile, Michelle Bachelet; from Colombia, Juan Manuel Santos; and from Mexico, Enrique Peña Nieto, among others.

“We have a crisis in the region with the situation in Venezuela and I hope we can promote an orderly transition in the coming months, or at least by the year 2019, through a resolution by these heads of state,” Kuczynski said.

“There’s also a humanitarian crisis to be resolved because there is neither food nor medicine,” said the Peruvian president, who has attempted to promote an alliance of countries to deal with the situation in Venezuela since he took office on July 28.

Kuczynski also confirmed the presence of U.S. President Barack Obama and his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping, at the 24th Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Summit to be held in Lima on Nov. 19-20.

The Peruvian president commented that Obama wishes to visit the Inca ruins of Machu Picchu, at some 1,000 kilometers (620 miles) southeast of Lima.

“I think it will be wonderful if he does,” Kuczynski said.
