Peru urges Bolivia to stop meddling in its internal affairs 2008-07-11 10:46:05   Print

    LIMA, July 10 (Xinhua) -- Peruvian President Alan Garcia Thursday urged Bolivia's government to stop interfering his country's internal affairs.

    Garcia told the press that nobody should intervene in other countries' internal policy and he was irritated after mutual condemnations between him and Bolivian President Evo Morales.

    But Garcia said he admired the Bolivian authorities for expressing their will to repair the bilateral ties.

    Tension between the two countries began in early June when Morales criticized Garcia as "fatter and less anti-imperialist" and Peru's government denounced "the verbal excess."

    On June 28, Morales alleged that the United States was setting up a military base in Peru. Peru denied the assertion.

    Bolivian Foreign Minister David Choquehuanca Wednesday said that the conflict between the two sides had been solved and they were both willing to restore their relationship.

    Garcia said that his country would not meddle in other nations' internal affairs or help any opposition power of foreign governments," because that (will) destroy the possibilities of integration in the continent."

    Other countries should not intervene in Peruvian issues either, he added.

    If Bolivia stops the inappropriate expressions, the two countries will strength their "brotherhood and fraternity," Garciasaid.
