Western Hemisphere: U.S. Statement on Resignation of Guatemalan Vice President

The U.S. Government takes note of the decision of Guatemala’s vice president to submit her resignation. We support President Otto Perez Molina and his administration’s efforts to address charges of official corruption in Guatemala. Strengthening transparency and government accountability is a central element of the Alliance for Prosperity and the U.S. Strategy for Engagement in Central America. Guatemala has been and remains a strong partner of the United States and a regional leader. We urge all Guatemalans to support the governmental institutions that investigate and prosecute allegations of corruption, and encourage the Perez Molina administration to work closely with the International Commission against Impunity in Guatemala (CICIG).
