Peruvian former Foreign Minister Óscar Maúrtua has been appointed again for the job to replace Héctor Béjar, who resigned earlier this week after just 19 days in office.
Peru's Foreign Minister Héctor Béjar Tuesday handed in his resignation to President Pedro Castillo, which was accepted. “I am free again!” posted the departing official on social media.
The Peruvian foreign minister Hector Bejar resigned on Tuesday following some controversial statements about the origins of terrorism in his country, thus becoming the first loss in the cabinet of president Pedro Castillo who took office in July.
Another bump in the head for the stubborn Peruvian president Pedro Castillo who took office this week. Not only his nomination for prime minister Guido Bellido has been questioned as a former admirer of a terrorist group that ravaged Peru in the eighties and nineties, but now repeats with his foreign minister, Hector Béjar, a former guerrilla member, with academic background who in his books praises armed revolution, with no forgiveness.
