This Friday, Peru called in consultation its ambassador in Santiago and sent a protest note to the government of Chile, a country it accuses of carrying out espionage actions, said the first Peruvian Minister, Ana Jara.
“Peru called on its ambassador in Chile. Furthermore, they have sent a diplomatic note of protest by espionage actions,” Jara wrote in her Twitter account.
The Minister, with this, ratified a press release previously sent by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, in which it was informed of the call to consultation to the ambassador and which it was stated that the person in charge of negotiations of Chile in Peru was delivered a diplomatic note in which the Peruvian government expressed “its most strong protest and rejection to the espionage activities against national security.”
The call to consultation is a diplomatic measure in which the ambassador temporarily returns to his country urgently, as a sign of discontent with a measure or action of the other state.
The Peruvian Foreign Ministry asks the Chilean government to make “a quick and thorough investigation to process those responsible for these acts” and to report the results to the Peruvian government.
In addition, it asks for “the assurances that such espionage actions will not be repeated.”
