Peruvian Air Force to launch UFO department

Officials are set to open a new department dedicated to investigating reports of UFOs in Peru.
The Anomalous Aerial Phenomenon Research Department (DIFAA) is scheduled to be formally launched in Lima today at the offices of the Peruvian Air Force with the assistance of the Civilian Advisory Council.

The announcement was made by council member Giorgio Piacenza who is also an adviser to the Exopolitics Institute. During his talk he outlined the plans for the new department and emphasised that it would value objective research and employ a number of qualified researchers and scientists.

"The prevalent attitude I surmise both in the Civilian Advisory Council and at the Peruvian Air Force is one of flexible, open-minded and also objective research and of considering the wide range of aspects which the UFO Phenomenon and the alleged or actual presence of extraterrestrial beings may entail," he said.

Piacenza also went on to mention an increase in UFO research being conducted by other countries in South America. "Many countries in the Latin American region are actively pursuing a similar path to legitimate these issues and overcome the unnecessary stigma attached to reporting about UFOs and the possible or real extraterrestrial presence," he said.

Some people think UFO=ET when it really means unidentified flying object. Give that, I suspect Peru is more interested in curbing their growing drug trafficking industry than hunting down little green men. Drug cartels have enough money to buy attack and surveillance drones. Peru is probably just looking to protect itself from attacks and reprisals from within.

its probably more likely to catch the drug cartels flying out there gear in there make-shift flying machines

Just read another report on this story, turns out there has been a pretty big increase in sightings over Peru and South America is considered to be a ufo hotspot.

Peru also has some belligerent neighbors.

They are not opening a new department, they are reopening the old one. The old one lasted from 2001 to 2005. The goal sounds closer to that of NARCAP as opposed to the woo woo sources like MUFON in that they wish to identify lights that interfere with aviation. Not quite searching for little green men.
