The United States congratulates the people of Peru on successfully holding elections on June 5. We congratulate President-elect Pedro Pablo Kuczynski on his victory in the election.

This election is a demonstration of Peru’s strong democratic values. We look forward to working with President- elect Kuczynski and his government to further enhance our bilateral relations and to promote democracy, development, and prosperity, as we have done with the government of President Humala. We will continue furthering the strong ties of friendship and cooperation that exist between the United States and Peru on both bilateral and multilateral issues.
