Peru should sever diplomatic ties with Japan: Waisman
Updated: 2005-11-13 18:24

Peruvian Vice President David Waisman has said Peru should break off diplomatic relations with Japan over the latter's handling of the situation regarding former President Alberto Fujimori, according to a local report on Saturday.

The recall of Ambassador to Japan Luis Macchiavello is not enough to protest against Japan's stance over Fujimori, Waisman was quoted as saying.

He referred to the interview with Fujimori conducted by Japanese Embassy staff in Chile following Fujimori's arrest in Santiago on Monday after he arrived on a chartered plane from Tokyo, where he has lived since 2000.

Meanwhile, more than 100 demonstrators gathered in front of the Japanese Embassy in Lima on Saturday to protest against Tokyo's refusal to hand over Fujimori to Peru.

Some of them threw eggs and tomatoes at the embassy building, but no one was injured and there were no reports of major disturbances.
