MIAMI-Today Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL) congratulated the Peruvian Community on its Independence Day.  He made the following statement:

“I congratulate Peruvians in Southern Florida and across the U.S. as they celebrate 185 years of independence from Colonial rule.  It is important to pay tribute to all of those patriots who sought independence for Peru, a nation which now lives in freedom.

“I look forward to working with Peruvian leaders to ensure democracy and rule of law in an increasingly unstable region and to strengthen bilateral relations through free trade and economic growth,” said Diaz-Balart.
