Senior military leaders from Peru and the United States are currently meeting in Washington D.C. with the aim of increasing technical cooperation to strengthen operational capabilities.
The Peruvian delegation is headed by Chief of Joint Staff Vice Admiral Carlos Chanduvi.
The meeting also seeks to exchange information and experience in operations and strategies.
"We are evaluating the need to promote greater areas of technical cooperation between the two countries and joint capacity planning through the creation of a common development and integration system," said Chanduvi, according to Peru's Embassy in Washington.
The meeting, the third of its kind, is part of the countries' shared goal of building a strategic relationship with clear objectives, and increasing military cooperation between both armed forces.
The Peruvian Ambassador to the United States, Harold Forsyth, said that dialogue is part of the diplomatic efforts of both countries to maintain and strengthen the "excellent bilateral relations."

The "shared goal of building a strategic relationship with clear objectives" needs to be clearly defined and explained to all Peruvians. The United States has a reputation for using military forces to promote its own economic interests at the expense of the host nation. Proceed with caution.

We all know what the real interests of the US and its barbaric military machine are with regard to Peru and South America. On the other hand it is not an easy thing to ease out of the generations of US control exercised through its so-alled embassy and one can only hope that the new Administration of President Humala is constantly aware of the danger and the importance of separating itself from the Empire.
