The President was declared this year as a person not grateful by the Government headed by Diana Boluarte in Peru.
Mexico City, September 6 (However).- The President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador affirmed this morning that he will avoid going through the air space of Peru on your next visit to Colombia y Chile to avoid some conflict with the Government headed by Diana Boluarte.
López Obrador pointed out that to avoid “nonsense” on the part of the Peruvian government, headed by Diana Boluarte, the plane that will transport him from Colombia to Chile will surround the airspace of Peru to reach the capital Santiago.
“Since we don’t want to be fooled, we are not going to request to go through the airspace of Peru. We are going to make a detour to get to Santiago de Chile,” he said.
“We are not doing it because we have hate problems or a frontal confrontation, we are doing it because we do not want the presidential inauguration to be involved in a scandal,” he clarified.
The Mexican president mentioned that it is better to act cautiously so as not to cause problems with the Peruvian authorities.
He also reported that he will be accompanied by a delegation made up of Foreign Minister Alicia Bárcena, the Secretaries of National Defense and the Navy, Luis Cresencio Sandoval and Rafael Ojeda, respectively, and that they will leave on a Mexican Air Force plane.
López Obrador will visit Colombia on September 8 and 9, and will be in Chile on the 10th and 11th of the same month, where he will meet with the presidents of both countries, Gustavo Metro and Gabriel Boric.
The president had mentioned that he will go to Colombia to discuss the issue of cooperation against the problem of drug trafficking and also the application of social programs at a meeting of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC) on a new anti-drug policy.
On the other hand, he will travel to Chile to pay homage to Salvador Allende for the 50th anniversary of his suicide, and with it the coup d’état by Augusto Pinochet on September 11, 1973.

CONFLICT WITH DIANA BOLUARTE
On May 26, López Obrador, in charge of the Presidency for the time of the Pacific Alliance, refused to hand over the mandate to Peru to “not legitimize the coup d’état” that he considers took place at the end of 2022, when President Pedro Castillo was removed and arrested.
At the same time, he pointed out that both governments would be on a break in their commercial relations, since the Mexican President asserted that Boluarte cannot establish himself as a “representative of the people”, since he barely had 23 percent popular approval.
In response to the constant criticism of the Peruvian authorities, the Andean Parliament gave the green light to declare a person not grateful to the Mexican president, faithful defender of Castillo’s legitimacy as President-elect.
