The president of the Council of Ministers, Mirtha Vasquez, confirmed his presence this Friday, January 14 at the Sayhua Community Stadium, in Cusco, where he will meet with five communities of Ccapacmarca, who agreed to ignore the agreements reached with Las Bambas.
During the opening ceremony of the Decentralized Council of Ministers in Moquegua, the prime minister specified that the government of President Pedro Castillo will continue with its policy of direct dialogue to channel the demands of the population settled on the southern mining corridor.
“There are communities that have expressed their desire to have a direct dialogue, because they have specific demands with an emphasis on environmental issues. It seems absolutely legitimate to us to listen to them and, as in all cases, we are going to attend ”, he affirmed.
In this sense, he explained that, despite a first agreement to review the Chumbivilcas agenda in progressive meetings, there are still communities that demand to be heard from the Executive, so they will accept their specifications as soon as possible.
“When they call us and want to talk directly with us, we have no problem. I think that is the best way, they have invited us and I will gladly go to the area, “said the head of the PCM.
Minister Mirtha Vásquez recalled that, since the beginning of her administration, they have interceded with MMG Ltd, the main operator of Las Bambas, to resolve the mining conflict that affects the communities of Cotabambas, Challhuahuacho and Chumbivilcas in their area of influence, which they pose a right of easement for the route that takes the copper concentrates to the coast.
“In this mining corridor there are many communities, such as those of Apurímac and Cusco, which have historically been postponed, and where it has not been known to channel the demands. The result of this is this explosion of conflicts in recent months, ”Vásquez remarked.
