By Rubén Morales Iglesias: US Secretary of States James Blinken will visit Costa Rica on June 1-2 said the US State Department in a press release issued on May 27.
This is Blinken’s in his first trip to Latin America since the Biden Administration took office.
In San José, Costa Rica, Blinken is expected to meet leaders of Central America, Mexico and the Dominican Republic with whom he’ll discuss, among other issues, the migratory situation said a report from the US State Department.
The US Secretary of State will meet with “senior leaders” of the Central American Integration System (SICA) and Mexico. SICA is comprised of all Central American countries, including Belize, plus the Dominican Republic.
Blinken will also meet separately with Costa Rican president Carlos Alvarado and Costa Rican Foreign Minister Rodolfo Solano with whom he’ll discuss the “strong U.S.-Costa Rica relationship, which benefits the people of both our countries.”
A US State Department statement said “Together, they will advance a collaborative approach to addressing the root causes of migration, including improving democratic governance, security, and economic opportunity for the people of Central America.”
Blinken will also meet with several of the region’s foreign ministers “to discuss joint efforts to address bilateral and regional issues.”
The US State Department concluded that through these meetings, “the Secretary will reinforce our cooperation on shared priorities, which also include promoting inclusive economic growth, combating the COVID-19 pandemic and recovering from its effects on our societies, and protecting livelihoods and the planet through environmental stewardship and action on climate change.”
