The Foreign Secretary spoke with the Peruvian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Gustavo Meza-Cuadra, on 21 March. He assured us that he would work together with the UK to make sure we could arrange flights home this week, including providing the necessary assistance to those UK nationals in Cusco. Our Embassy is working closely with the Peruvian authorities to ensure that restrictions on movement in Peru do not prevent passengers from getting onto flights that they have booked.
