Peru: Summit of the Americas kicks off inaugural day in Lima

Government leaders of North, Central, and South America convened in Lima on Friday, for the eighth Summit of the Americas. The Summit kicked off amid political turmoil caused by a multitude of corruption scandal allegations with President of Peru Martin Vizcarra saying in his opening speech «We are clear that corruption is one of the greatest obstacles to the development and effective enjoyment... Еще of human rights.» The Summit also addressed the ongoing crisis in Syria with Luis Almagro, Secretary-General of Organisation of American States (OAS) saying, «An extreme example of the most despised disregard for human rights that dictatorships are capable of is the Syrian government's chemical weapons attack against its own population in the face of these crimes of humility. We cannot remain silent. We must take action.»
