San Salvador, Mar 2 (Prensa Latina) El Salvador is committed today to consolidate ourselves as a strong and independent region, ensuring our better insertion and projection in the international arena, said Deputy Foreign Minister Adriana Mira during her speech at the 8th Summit of Heads of State and Government of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC).

Mira reiterated that his country is deeply convinced that regional spaces constitute platforms that allow for rapprochement as a bloc to address the multiple current challenges.

Although the Latin American and Caribbean region has characteristics that differentiate our countries, I am sure that I can affirm that we maintain a single aspiration: to consolidate ourselves as a strong and independent region, ensuring our better insertion and projection in the international arena, said the diplomat.

In this regard, she added that El Salvador firmly believes in the significance of jointly contributing to the construction of a renewed multilateralism, where ‘mutual respect and equality of conditions for all nations’ prevail.

She pointed out the important role played by CELAC as an interlocutor of Latin America and the Caribbean with extra-regional partners, which ‘become allies to build cooperative relations between regions, based mainly on the potential that each one can offer’.

The diplomat called to ‘make maximum use of the rich cultural, historical and natural heritage of our region, and promote the exchange of knowledge and experiences in all areas’. In this space, the Salvadoran representative also expressed the desire to continue strengthening this type of mechanisms, under a proactive spirit, in order to achieve results that benefit our nations, ‘prioritizing our people first and foremost’.

In the meeting that concluded on Friday in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Mira talked about all steeped-up efforts promoted by the government of Nayib Bukele, especially in the area of security, which was transformed from the Territorial Control Plan, the main public policy in this area.
