No prob­lem with U.K. over nix­ing of ship visit

The Washington Times Daily - - World -

LIMA | Peru’s pres­i­dent has de­nied that prob­lems ex­ist in the coun­try’s re­la­tions with Bri­tain af­ter Peru’s decision to can­cel a visit by a Bri­tish navy frigate.

Bri­tain last week crit­i­cized the decision to can­cel the war­ship’s visit. Peru said the visit was can­celed out of sol­i­dar­ity with Ar­gentina in its dis­pute with Bri­tain over the Falk­land Is­lands.

Pres­i­dent Ol­lanta Hu­mala said in an in­ter­view with the Peru­vian tele­vi­sion sta­tion Panamer­i­cana that “there is no im­passe, no prob­lem in the diplo­matic re­la­tions be­tween Great Bri­tain and Peru.”

Mr. Hu­mala said in the in­ter­view Sun­day night that the can­cel­la­tion of the visit is an “is­sue re­lat­ing to the present sit­u­a­tion.”

He said Peru’s re­la­tions with Bri­tain “con­tinue mov­ing for­ward.”
