Evo charges: US plans bases in Peru

The government of Peru issued a statement saying it formally “rejects” recent comments by Bolivia’s President Evo Morales about the supposed installation of US bases on Peruvian territory. Lima has called its ambassador in Bolivia, Fernando Rojas, to discuss the controversy. Morales said June 29 that, denied bases in Bolivia and Ecuador, the US “is taking Peru,” and called on that country’s people to “resist and expel” them from their territory. (AFP, July 1)
