It was confirmed by Bolivian Foreign Minister Rogelio Mayta during a short visit to Spain.
On his Twitter account, Mayta noted that President Luis Arce will head the Bolivian delegation to the Ibero-American Summit, to be attended by all 22 member countries of the bloc.
Today I spoke with Ibero-American Secretary General Andres Allamand about the upcoming Ibero-American Summit in March, Bolivia’s participation and the issues to be addressed at the meeting,’ Mayta said.
The head of Bolivian diplomacy took advantage of his meeting with Allamand, who was Chile’s foreign minister during the government of Sebastian Piñera, to stress that Bolivia will make emphasis on the threat posed by hate speeches on democracies.
Another issue addressed in Madrid by the Bolivian Foreign Minister, who also met with his Spanish counterpart, Jose Manuel Albares, was the criterion of La Paz to promote regional integration, in all its dimensions, including Mercosur.
Mayta’s European tour included Geneva, where he met with MEPs and members of the United Nations Human Rights Council. On Monday he is expected to meet Pope Pope Francis at the Vatican.
