Peruvian President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski warned on Friday at the United Nations (UN) against the “danger” of emigration “en masse” of Venezuelans to neighboring countries, few hours after his meeting in Washington with US President Donald Trump.
Kuczynski, the first Latin American president that has met with the incoming US President Donald Trump at the White House, disclosed on “red-hot issues” that needed to be discussed, such as the Venezuelan case, AFP quoted.
“Venezuela does not want any meddling and that is natural, but also there is the danger of massive emigration to Colombia, Curacao and other countries in Latin America,” Kuczynski told reporters of international news agencies at the UN headquarters in New York, following a meeting with UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres.
Kuczynski has lobbied for the establishment of a global group of countries on behalf of the Venezuelan people, overburdened with shortage of food and medicines and the highest inflation rate in the world, estimated by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) at 1660% by 2017.
Both Trump and Kuczynski met recently with Lilian Tintori, the wife of imprisoned opposition leader Leopoldo López.
