Miami, FL – During his visit to Lima, Peru surrounding the Summit of the Americas, U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) released the following statement following a briefing on illegal gold mining by the U.S. Embassy in Peru:

Embassy staff was gracious enough to give me a detailed briefing on regional efforts to identify, prevent, and counter this illicit activity. I’m thankful to the Embassy officials for the briefing and all their hard work as they advance our partnership and mutual interests with the Peruvian government and people. The Trump Administration has already begun to prosecute these international criminals and I will continue to encourage them to work with our regional allies to combat it.”

Miami, FL – Después de su visita a la VIII Cumbre de las Américas, el senador estadounidense Marco Rubio (R-FL) emitió el siguiente mensaje sobre el informe dado por la Embajada de los Estados Unidos en el Perú:

El oro se está convirtiendo en el método preferido por los cárteles de droga, los terroristas y las dictaduras para lavar su dinero, un tema en el que la Embajada de los Estados Unidos en el Perú se ha enfocado. El personal de la Embajada tuvo la gentileza de darme una sesión informativa detallando los esfuerzos regionales para identificar, prevenir y contrarrestar esta actividad ilícita. Gracias a la Embajada por la información dada y por su arduo trabajo a medida que avanzamos nuestra asociación con el gobierno del Perú. La Administración del Presidente Trump ya ha comenzado a enjuiciar a estos criminales internacionales y continuaré apoyando a nuestros aliados regionales para combatirlos.
