And the Undersecretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of this country, in statements to the “Telam” news agency, indicated that the meeting, which is scheduled to be held on the 24th of this month, will highlight the importance of preserving the region as a peace zone.

In addition, he indicated that representatives of the 33 member states will work to increase joint measures and integration, while respecting the specificities of each.

On the other hand, work will continue to strengthen CELAC as a mechanism for coordination and political agreement.

Martinez highlighted that this body has gained, under the interim presidency of Argentina, greater dynamism and presence in international forums, allowing it to defend the voice of Latin America and the Caribbean.
