Foreign Minister Plasencia meets with the Secretary General of the Ibero-American Summit

The People’s Power Minister for Foreign Relations, Félix Plasencia, arrived in the Dominican Republic this Thursday to participate in the First Meeting of Ministers of Foreign Affairs, before the XXVIII Ibero-American Summit to be held in the Caribbean nation under the slogan “Together towards a fair and sustainable Ibero-America”.

After his arrival in Santo Domingo, Foreign Minister Plasencia held a meeting with the acting secretary of the Ibero-American Summit, Marco Pinta Gama.

During his stay in the country, the Venezuelan Foreign Minister will maintain a large work schedule with his Ibero-American counterparts who will participate in the meeting this Friday, November 26.

Tomorrow it is expected that a new Ibero-American Secretary General will be elected from the ministerial conclave, replacing Rebeca Gryspan, who since August of this year was appointed Secretary General of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (Unctad).

The Dominican Republic assumed the Pro Tempore Secretary at the end of the last Summit in Andorra, so it will maintain this responsibility until the XXVIII Ibero-American Summit.

The objective of the Meeting of Foreign Ministers is to reach a consensus on the common challenges that affect the region for the post-pandemic recovery.
