Jaime Bellolio said, however, that «we are in the step where we want to talk with those people who are influential, incidents in the situation that today lives La Araucanía». «The question one could ask is what’s additional that might happen when there’s a state of siege,» he added.
In the midst of the situation due to the latest acts of violence in La Araucanía, and after a group of official parliamentarians asked to decree a state of siege in the area, the spokesman minister, Jaime Bellolio, said in dialogue with Radio Pauta that the measure has not been ruled out by the Executive.
«We haven’t ruled anything out. The question one might ask is what’s additional that might happen when there’s a state of siege. But while it has not been ruled out, we see that the first action that has to be taken is that taken by Minister Delgado,» Bellolio said.
The Minister-General of Government also valued President Sebastián Piñera’s call for dialogue and political actors and civil society, «in order to agree cross-cuttingly on how to combat such violence, how to combat such terrorism».
«»We are in the step where we want to talk with those people who are influential, incidents in the situation that La Araucanía lives today, where there are some who are the ones who promote violence, destruction and others, trying to reverse it, through a cause and that is something that we of course reject very strongly, today the situation that is required is another , there has to be a broad agreement, of course, but within the margins of democracy and the dignity of people,» he added. »
