During a tour in the region, British Foreign Minister Joyce Anelay declared in Guatemala that her country wants to strengthen relations with Central America and Mexico after the United Kingdom’s decision to leave the European Union.
The diplomat stated that her country is committed to keep working with its international partners.
She stressed that London wants to reinforce its commitment to achieve peace, security, as well as strengthening the system based on international rules.
