President Dina Boluarte had qualifications against Gustavo Petro (Colombia), AMLO (Mexico) and Gabriel Boric (Chile).
It is well known that the relationship between the President of the Republic, Dina Boluarte, and her counterparts Gustavo Petro (Colombia), Gabriel Boric (Chile) and Andrés Manuel López Obrador (Mexico) is not good because they have opposing positions regarding the failed self-coup of State that Pedro Castillo made on December 7 of last year. Once again, he has ratified it.

In an interview with the newspaper El Comercio, Boluarte Zegarra regretted that his peers defend Castillo when he wanted to break the constitutional order. “I am very sorry that these presidents have to accompany in their defense a former president who carried out a coup, which makes him a dictator and, on top of that, investigated for corruption,” he noted.
The president stressed that Petro, Boric and AMLO “have been democratically elected by the people.” For this reason, she wondered if “they also want to become dictators like the former president and that is why they support and protect with their messages, wherever they can, a dictator under investigation for corruption?” “That is what makes me feel sorry for these leftist leaders,” she emphasized.

Boluarte also said that external interference continues to this day due to the statements of the aforementioned heads of state. In addition, he included former Bolivian President Evo Morales, who has been one of Castillo’s most ardent supporters.
Former President Pedro Castillo is serving 18 months in preventive detention for a failed self-coup.
As it is public, AMLO has launched harsh questions against President Boluarte to such an extent that he does not recognize her. On February 17, the Mexican dignitary came to describe the current Peruvian regime as “spurious.”

“We are looking for a way to hand over the presidency. It was up to Peru, but when the meeting was to take place, the president was not allowed to leave. Then we were going to visit Peru and they arrested him in what I consider a technical coup, although he has also used the police, ”said AMLO, who has offered his support to former President Pedro Castillo.
“It was an illegal, undemocratic, arbitrary act, the will of the people of Peru was not respected. I do not want to hand over the presidency to a government that I consider spurious, that the members of the Rí group decide. (…) I do not want to legitimize a coup d’état, ”he added.
For his part, Petro also persists in his defense in favor of Castillo. “Criticism is not to one side, without looking at the other […] But don’t we look at Peru, then? Isn’t there a president imprisoned there without a judicial sentence, without his political rights, that is, contrary to the Democratic Charter?” he questioned during his presentation at the extraordinary session of the Organization of American States (OAS) on April 20 .

“Can elected presidents be thrown out just because, because they do not have a majority in Congress, when they are elected by the people? Does the Democratic Charter say that only a judicial sentence by a criminal judge takes away political rights?” continued the head of state.
The statement prompted the Peruvian ambassador Gustavo Adrianzen to leave the meeting, which has been taking place for three days in Washington.
The government rejected the president’s statements and accused him, once again, of meddling in the internal affairs of that nation. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs expressed disagreement with this position, which worsened during the protests that that country experienced a few weeks ago. “Foreign Minister (Ana Cecilia) Gervasi: New and unacceptable interference by Gustavo Petro in the affairs of Peru, in the OAS and in violation of its charter,” they said.
