JOINT PRESS RELEASE
Special Envoy of Uruguay H.E. Ambassador Gonzalo Koncke visited Belize on August 15, 2014 on a special mission. He was welcomed in Belize City and met with H.E. Alexis Rosado, CEO in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and his team. In their meeting they discussed ways of enhancing bilateral cooperation between Belize and the Republic of Uruguay.
Among other things, Ambassador Gonzalo Koncke confirmed the Government of Uruguay’s support for Belize’s candidate Ambassador Nestor Mendez for the post of Assistant Secretary General of the Organization of American States (OAS). This follows an earlier announcement by Belize to support the candidacy of Uruguayan Minister of Foreign Affairs H.E. Dr. Luis Almagro for the post of Secretary General of the OAS, a decision that was reconfirmed during this visit.
The agreement is based on the mutual recognition of the competence of their respective candidates. The Governments of Belize and Uruguay recognize the need to renew the programmatic mandate of the OAS and their desire to positively contribute to the strategic review process to the extent that they can on the same issues in respect of the Organization, its challenges at the hemispheric level, its functions and its strengthening.
