FORMER Bolivian president Evo Morales has hit out after he was declared “persona non grata” by the Peruvian Congress over his “negative political activism” in the country.
Foreign Affairs Commission president Ernesto Bustamante, from the right-wing Fuerza Popular Party, accused Mr Morales of “evident interference and meddling in the social and economic agenda of the government of Peru.”
In declaring Mr Morales persona non grata he said that the actions of the Bolivian were “to the clear detriment of the interests of the Peruvian people” and its government.
The Movement Towards Socialism leader visited Peru in July and has held discussions over the nationalisation of key sectors of industry and the rejection of US interference.
He called for the establishment of an Andean council of coca producers and said that Argentina, Bolivia and Peru should join forces over the production of lithium — a valuable metal.
Speaking after the symbolic declaration Mr Morales said that “unity and solidarity” between the two nations is vital.
“Bolivia and Peru are brothers with historic and unbreakable ties in the struggle for dignity and sovereignty.
“Unity and solidarity are above the declarations of a group of congressmen,” he said.
