and advocated for a peaceful and lasting solution through diplomatic channels.

Peru agrees with what was expressed by the UN Secretary General, Antonio Guterres, in the sense that the recognition of the independence of the separatist territories and the deployment of military forces in these territories “are incompatible with the principles of the United Nations Charter and constitute a violation of the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Ukraine,” the Ambassador said.

For a negotiated solution

In a brief message, the Peruvian diplomat urged the parties concerned to make every effort to defuse the conflict, reduce tensions, start a process of de-escalation, build trust and find the most appropriate ways to start consultations, as well as negotiations that make possible a negotiated solution, as prescribed by international law and the Charter of the United Nations.

“It is imperative that all hostilities and ceasefire violations in the area cease, as prescribed by the Minsk agreements,” he stressed.

The Permanent Representative said that Peru reaffirms its belief that international peace and security entails the obligation of all States to resolve conflicts through peaceful means of settling disputes.

International law and sovereignty

Therefore, it is necessary to strictly apply the principles of respect for obligations arising from treaties and other sources of international law, non-use of force or the threat of use of force, respect for sovereignty, the territorial integrity of States and the protection of the human rights of populations.

“In the current difficult and complex situation, Peru considers it essential and imperative to use the means offered by diplomacy to ensure consultations and negotiations that guarantee a peaceful and lasting solution that takes into account the legitimate interests of the parties, in the strict respect for the Charter of the United Nations and the norms of international law,” the envoy concluded.
