The representatives of the Paris Club creditor countries met on June 15, 2005 to agree on the offer made by the Republic of Peru to prepay up to US$ 2 bn principal maturities of its debt falling due between August 2005 and December 2009. The prepayment will be made at par and offered to all creditors. The debt covered by this offer is the debt not granted under Official Development Assistance conditions.

Payments to creditors will be made on August 15, 2005.
