The San Martin Palace, headquarters of the Argentine Foreign Ministry, will welcome early in the morning the ministers who make up the regional bloc. CELAC was founded 12 years ago, with the aim of creating a space for coordinating the development and integrating the paths of the countries in the region.

According to the program, after the traditional official photo, the session will begin at 10:00 local time with a speech by the host, Argentine Foreign Minister, Santiago Cafiero, followed by his Mexican counterpart, Marcelo Ebrard, who will give a report on his country’s performance during its pro tempore presidency.

With the attendance of President Alberto Fernandez, the meeting will address several issues of common interest and will also decide by vote whether Argentina will replace Mexico in that role, already supported by 31 of the 32 CELAC countries.

Thursday was a hectic day at the Foreign Ministry, with Cafiero welcoming several of his peers and representatives of various delegations. Later in the evening, President Fernandez hosted a dinner for the guests at the Kirchner Cultural Center.

Argentina regards the strengthening of regional integration through political coordination, with a focus on solidarity and cooperation, a strategic priority.

The celebration of CELAC foreign ministers’ summit for the first time in Argentina allows the austral nation to express its commitment to strengthening ties among the countries of the region and fostering bridges of dialogue and inclusion.
