(CNN Spanish) — The government of the president of Peru, Dina Boluarte, presented protest notes to the ambassadors of Bolivia and Colombia in the country for the declarations of presidents Luis Arce and Gustavo Petro on the sociopolitical crisis in that nation.

“The Ministry of Foreign Relations delivered a note to the Bolivian ambassador, through which it conveys an energetic protest against the statements of President Luis Arce on domestic policy issues,” wrote the Foreign Ministry of Peru this Monday on Twitter.

On Saturday, Bolivian President Luis Arce said at an event in La Paz: “We have the Peruvian people in a fight to recover their democracy and also to recover the right to elect a government that represents them.”

In its note, the Peruvian Foreign Ministry pointed out that “with this, (Arce) persists in an unacceptable interference in matters that only concern Peruvians.”

Regarding Colombia, the Foreign Ministry reported that the note of “strong protest” refers to statements by Petro about the events that occurred on the campus of the University of San Marcos.

On Saturday, Peter wrote on his Twitter account: “Raid universities. Shout Death to intelligence! The Permanent Council of the OAS must be summoned to examine the case of Peru”. Likewise, he retweeted several publications that criticize the actions of the Boluarte government at the University of San Marcos.

“Their acts of interference are inconsistent with the conduct that every head of state must observe in compliance with international law,” The Peruvian Foreign Ministry pointed out on Twitter.

The foreign ministries of Bolivia and Colombia have not reacted publicly to these protest notes from Peru. CNN is attempting to contact both governments for comment on the matter.

Last Saturday, the Peruvian National Police stormed the National University of San Marcos (UNMSM) to evict a large group of protesters who had settled in the university. On Sunday, the Peruvian Ministry of the Interior reported that 192 of the 193 people arrested in Saturday’s intervention were released.

All this occurs in the context of the protests against the Boluarte government and after the removal of Pedro Castillo as president —occurred on December 7—, in which context there have been clashes between protesters and public order forces. These have left 56 people dead to date.
