Peru Opposition Urges Authorities to Recognize South Ossetia and Abkhazia2009-11-19 14:30
The opposition Peruvian Nationalist Party calls on the leaders of the republic to recognize South Ossetia's and Abkhazia's independence.gt-en-newsitem-inside
The party has already submitted the related request to the Congress.
Peru's nationalists are sure the parliament has no reasons to deny recognition to the two Transcaucasian republics.
Ollanta Humala, the party leader told recently in his interview with RIA Novosti: "Peru is one of the countries that officially recognized independence of Kosovo. So we believe that Abkhazia and South Ossetia also deserve being officially recognized as new republics. This made us submit a request to recognize these two new republics officially to the executive authority (Congress)".
He adds the proposal was submitted to the country's Congress last week. Besides the Peruvian Nationalist Party is holding negotiations with various political forces and parliamentary groups calling for their support.
"I hope the work will continue this way and we'll be able to convince the Congress of the necessity to take this decision (on recognition of two Transcaucasian republics)... I see no obstacles for the executive authority to recognize their independence. If Kosovo has already been recognized, it has no weighty arguments to forego South Ossetia's and Abkhazia's recognition", - Humala remarked.
It will be remembered that two states - Nicaragua and Venezuela followed the example of Russia that was the first to recognize independence of the two republics in August 2008. On a recent visit to Moscow Ecuador's president Rafael Correa said his country was ready to consider recognition of South Ossetia and Abkhazia upon receipt of official requests.
