Analysis | We must consider denouncing the Mexican State before The Hague 3:12
(CNN Spanish) -- The Foreign Relations Commission of the Congress of Peru approved on Monday, with 11 votes in favor, 1 vote against and 3 abstentions, the motion that rejects the statements of the president of Mexico, Andrés López Obrador, and declares him persona non grata. The document will now go to the plenary to pronounce on it.
The president of Mexico has declared on several occasions his support for former President Pedro Castillo and about the political situation in Peru.

Earlier, in his usual morning press conference, López Obrador had said that for him it was "a bell of pride that those who act in that way declare it non grata."
The motion had been presented by Avanza Pais congresswoman Patricia Chirinos, who said on Twitter that the Mexican president's words "are intended to mock and divide" Peruvians.
López Obrador has refused to hand Peru the presidency of the Pacific Alliance due to the crisis that led to Castillo's departure from power in December. On repeated occasions, in addition, the president of Mexico has described as spurious the government of Dina Boluarte.
