Music icon and lead singer of rock band The Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger, is on a leisure trip to Peru, attracted by its tourist destinations, said José Koechlin, President of Peru's Hotel Society, or SHP.
"It is a private visit by someone who likes Peru and enjoys his free time. It is a tourist visit, he is happy to be here," said Koechlin, who accompanied the singer while in Lima.
Koechlin noted that this is a 'positive visit' for the country and the details of the trip are kept secret to respect Jagger's privacy.
"Respect for his privacy is a proof that we treat visitors well and a message to other musicians who want to visit Peru. He honors us with his visit and we honor him by respecting his privacy," the SHP's head added.
Peruvian President Ollanta Humala and his wife Nadine Heredia met over the weekend with Mick Jagger at the Government Palace in Lima.
