SUKHUM -- The opposition Nationalist Party of Peru submitted to the Peruvian Congress a request to recognize independence of South Ossetia and Abkhazia; the party is convinced the Congress will have no reason to refuse the recognition of the two Transcaucasian republics, the party leader Ollanta Humala said Wednesday.
Humala has become a popular politician in Peru thanks to the nationalist, antiimperialistic and antiamerican ideas. In 2006 he ran for presidency and got 44,56 % of votes (55,45 % voted for the incumbent head of the state Alan Garcia) and received wide backing from the voters in the poorest areas of Peru. The Nationalist Party of Peru he heads is the second important political force in the country.
"Peru is one of the countries that officially recognized independence of Kosovo. So we believe that Abkhazia and South Ossetia also deserve being officially recognized as new republics. This made us submit a request to recognize these two new republics officially to the executive authority (Congress)", Humala said.
He adds the proposal was submitted to the country's Congress last week. Besides the Peruvian Nationalist Party is holding negotiations with various political forces and parliamentary groups calling for their support..
"I hope the work will continue this way and we'll be able to convince the Congress of the necessity to take this decision (on recognition of the two Transcaucasian republics)... I see no obstacles for the executive authority to recognize their independence. If Kosovo has already been recognized, it has no weighty arguments not to recognize South Ossetia and Abkhazia", Humala stressed.
