On the first stop of her Latin America and Caribbean tour, Secretary Clinton met with Peruvian President Alan Garcia Perez at the Presidential Palace in Lima, Peru.

Secretary Clinton said, "The United States applauds the progress in Peru toward economic inclusion, the reduction of poverty, and greater opportunity for the Peruvian people. The United States and Peru are working together to protect the environment, to move toward more sources of renewable independent energy to fuel the economy here in Peru."

She continued, "The United States and Peru are working together to provide security for people. And as President Garcia has discussed, that is security in their homes, on their streets, from crime, from drug traffickers and other threats. President Obama greatly appreciates the Peruvian Government's support for nonproliferation, especially to send a message of unity to Iran and North Korea that their actions pose a threat to the peace and stability of the world community."
