Peruvian Interior Minister Carlos Morán visited the NGO Unión Venezolana in Peru and from there announced that the government will extend Special Migratory Status for Venezuelans.
“We emphasize that Peru is a supportive and fraternal country, and we have opened the doors to the immense number of Venezuelans who have fled a humanitarian, political and economic crisis,” Morán explained during the meeting.
Likewise, the minister said during the meeting that Peru understands the massive migration of Venezuelans and that during this acceptance of Venezuelans “bad elements have leaked in. As a government we have to separate the wheat from the chaff.
Moran recognized the Venezuelans who came to Peru to work for a better future.
“We are going to have a meeting with Oscar Pérez Torrez (president of the NGO) and Ambassador Carlos Scull to register all the Venezuelan motorcyclists who do a clean and honest job. They will identify themselves and become our allies,” Morán added.
The minister stressed that they will fight criminals, whether national or foreign.
Venezuela’s ambassador to Peru, Carlos Scull, welcomed the minister’s decision and promised to continue fighting for better quality immigration.
“Now we continue to fight for a more optimal migratory quality for those seeking refuge. Regularization is the right path,” Scull said through his personal Twitter account.
