The imposition of the resignation of Foreign Minister Héctor Béjar is, without a doubt, an enormous show of weakness and will have consequences in the future. To discuss this issue we spoke with Ricardoi Jiménez, sociologist and activist of ALBA Movimientos del Perú, and a regular contributor to Resumen Latinoamericano.
