For the first time, the Foreign Ministers of Central America and the Dominican Republic will jointly hold a meeting with their Mexican counterpart, Luis Videgaray Caso, with whom they will discuss the migration issue.
The meeting is taking place within the framework of the XLIX Ordinary Meeting of Foreign Ministers of the Central American Integration System (SICA), currently taking place in the country, of which Costa Rica holds the Pro Tempore Presidency.
We will address the issue of SICA’s relationship with Mexico and analyze the context affecting the region, which focuses on the issue of migratory flow that has affected us more and more in recent years, whether we are a country of transit or origin. There must be honest and comprehensive talks because this is not one country’s situation,
said Manuel Gonzalez, Costa Rican Foreign Minister.
He clarified that this is not a Central American region or Mexico’s proposal, but an exchange of views and joint impressions, that is why it does not aim to reach an agreement, but to establish bases at a technical level.
The agenda also includes the follow-up of the presidential mandates reached at the various summits, the proposal to strengthen the Executive Committee, the creation of the SICA-Chile working group and the state discussion on the comprehensive regional migration proposal.
