The governments of Peru and the United States today agreed on the need for the next Summit of the Americas, to be held in Lima in April, to yield concrete results and not mere declarations, said Peruvian Foreign Minister Cayetana Aljovín. According to Aljovín, the development of the Summit of the Americas was one of the topics discussed at the meeting held this afternoon with Rex Tillerson, Secretary of State of the United States, who began today an official visit to Peru. Aljovín added that in the meeting they talked with Tillerson about the excellent state of bilateral relations between the United States and Peru, and agreed to cooperate to continue deepening them in other fields, such as investments. Another point of the conversation, she reported, was Peru’s participation in the Security Council of the United Nations. In that regard, she stressed that Tillerson thanked Peru’s willingness to “build consensus” within the Security Council.
