CARACAS, Wednesday June 07, 2006 | Update
Peruvian President Alejandro Toledo said during an interview
published Wednesday in a Brazilian newspaper that at the end
of his incumbency, he would fight populism fueled by petrodollars
in Latin America, Efe quoted.
"When I leave the presidency, I will become a warrior against cheap populism of petrodollars," Toledo told daily newspaper Folha de Sao Paolo. Additionally, reference was made to interference of Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez in the Peruvian elections.
The Peruvian head of state voiced again his differences with Chávez due to meddling in the elections won Sunday by ex President Alan García, the candidate of Partido Aprista Peruano (PAP).
Continued Chávez remarks on behalf of Nationalist candidate Ollanta Humala unleashed a diplomatic crisis between the two countries.
