Bachelet, Kuczynski Meet for 1st Time since Peru Elections

PUERTO VARAS, Chile – Chilean President Michelle Bachelet met on Friday with Peru’s President-elect Pedro Pablo Kuczynski for the two leaders’ first official meeting since Peru’s next chief executive won the June 5 election.

Bachelet welcomed Kuczynski before the inauguration of the 11th Pacific Alliance Summit, to be held in the southern Chilean city of Puerto Varas and to which Peru’s president-elect was invited.

At his meeting with the Chilean president, Kuczynski was accompanied by Mercedes Araoz, named as 2nd vice president of his Cabinet when he takes office in place of current Peruvian President Ollanta Humala.

Also attending the meeting on the Chilean side were Foreign Minister Heraldo Muñoz and Treasury Minister Rodrigo Valdes.

Chilean authorities hope to maintain good relations with the next Peruvian government and smooth away some of the problems that arose during the past year over the sovereignty of the “land triangle,” a small, contested expanse of land on their mutual border.

“We are both members of the Pacific Alliance, we are in the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum together, we have jointly signed the TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership), there are large communities of Peruvians in our country and mutual investments. Everything is set for building a future with Peru and now the right time has come,” the Chilean foreign minister said last Wednesday.

Kuczynski, meanwhile, expressed this Thursday his intention to reestablish the bilateral dialogue mechanism known as “2+2,” which includes meetings among the Foreign and Defense Ministries of the two countries.
