Prime Minister Oscar Valdes called for an end to violence in Cajamarca on Monday morning, and said the government was evaluating the current state of emergency in the area.
Valdes’ comments come after former President Alejandro Toledo called for an end to the 30-day state of emergency in Cajamarca on Sunday, arguing it would be “the most prudent” course of action.
During an interview with RPP, the prime minister said the government accepted “the opinions of former presidents, as well as those of all Peruvians.”
“I imagine the president is considering [ending the state of emergency], and we’ll see if it is done or not,” Valdes was quoted as saying by El Comercio.
The prime minister traveled to the Ramis River, in Puno, on Monday morning, to witness the local pollution caused by informal miners, RPP reported.
Valdes was accompanied by Minister of Energy and Mining Jorge Merino, Minister of Interior Wilver Calle, Minister of Agriculture Luis Ginocchio, Minister of Health Alberto Tejada, and Minister of Housing Rene Cornejo.
