Newsline: Peru’s foreign minister resigns due to disagreements with President

Peru’s Foreign Minister, Miguel Rodríguez Mackay, resigned on Friday as head of the Peruvian diplomacy a little more than a month after taking office due to disagreements with Peruvian President Pedro Castillo. The resignation has been announced by the Peruvian Foreign Ministry itself through its Twitter account, where it has shared a “letter of irrevocable resignation” from the minister to Castillo. (https://www.msn.com/en-ca/news/world/peru-s-foreign-minister-resigns-due-to-disagreements-with-pedro-castillo/ar-AA11FfeA) The head of Peruvian diplomacy would have declined after a disagreement regarding the position between his sector and President Pedro Castillo on, for example, the Escazu Agreement signed in April 2021, Peru’s accession to the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (Convemar), and the recent recognition of the Saharawi Republic, as reported by ‘El Comercio’. Rodriguez Mackay announced that the Government was withdrawing its recognition of the Saharawi Arab Republic. However, the same day Pedro Castillo denied what his minister said, pointing out that Peru reaffirmed its relations with that country, according to ‘La República’.
