As reported, the authority is in place for the entire month of November and responds to the established schedule for the entry of foreign troops into Peruvian territory.
In this regard, Congresswoman Martha Chávez (GPF) proposed the inclusion in Article 1 of the name of the country of origin of the troops, so as not to leave open the possibility for armed forces of other countries.
