Former Senior Peruvian Officials to Call for Action Against Castillo Regime
September 27, 2021
WASHINGTON, D.C.— The election in June of Pedro Castillo, a Communist with ties to the political arm of the Shining Path terrorist organization, as president of Peru has set in train a strategic windfall for the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and a mortal peril for the United States.
Two top officials of previous Peruvian governments, former First Vice President and Foreign Minister Francisco Tudela and former Vice Interior Minister Dardo Lopez-Dolz, will address these dangers for their own country, for the Western Hemisphere and for vital American interests at home and abroad during an online press conference tomorrow from 9:30-10:30 a.m. ET.
Such dangers include:
- The construction and use by the Communist Chinese of a major deep-water port on the western coast of South America for not only commercial shipping and further economic and strategic penetration of the hemisphere, but also with the capacity to support the CCP’s naval forces, including their aircraft carrier battle groups.
- The ramping up of Peru’s cocaine production and narco-trafficking with the new government in Lima’s sponsorship and the menace by the power behind Castillo, Council of Ministers President Guido Bellido, to remove the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency from Peru. Americans will be the victims of much of the death and destruction that will ensue.
- The transformation and empowerment of one of the world’s most ruthless terrorist organizations, the Shining Path, through the non-violent political takeover of government strategies that imperil not only Peruvians but, through their relations with the Sao Paulo Forum that unites 125 Latin American communist parties, Hezbollah, the FARC, drug-cartels and other transnational criminal organizations, countless others outside Peru.
- As the Peruvian economy goes the way of devastating 21st Century “socialism” and the Sao Paulo Forum recommendations, millions of Peruvians will inevitably flee their country—a large number of whom joining the already intolerably large influx of illegal aliens heading here.
Messrs. Tudela and Lopez-Dolz will present recommendations for what their countrymen and women with support from the United States and other Free World nations can do to stave off such disasters and restore freedom in Peru.
