Еhe Peruvian government currently assesses the possibility of recalling its Ambassador to Venezuela for consultations in light of the Bolivarian country’s political crisis, Foreign Affairs Minister Ricardo Luna said. “There is always the possibility for Ambassadors to be recalled on consultations, depending on how the situation develops. Of course it is under evaluation,” he told reporters. Recalling an Ambassador for consultations is a diplomatic mechanism used by States to express their disagreement with a decision or acting of another State. It is usually a temporary measure. Consultations with the region’s Ambassadors on Venezuela’s situation started on Sunday. Proceedings may end on Wednesday or Thursday in Cartagena de Indias (Colombia), where the 25th Ibero-American Summit of Heads of State and Government will be held. Last Saturday, the Foreign Affairs Minister voiced his objection to Venezuela’s National Electoral Council decision to delay the signature collection process required to activate the recall referendum against President Nicolas Maduro.
