Peru recalls ambassador to Mexico over diplomatic row

PERUVIAN President Dina Boluarte announced yesterday the “definitive recall” of her ambassador to Mexico, citing the continued support that the North American country has given to deposed president Pedro Castillo.

Peru’s leftist former president Castillo was impeached and arrested for attempting to dissolve parliament and rule by decree in December, and Boluarte has since seen weeks of anti-government protests across the Andean nation calling for her removal.
