Mexico and Guatemala strengthen diplomatic relations with Honorary Consulate

To strengthen diplomatic relations between Mexico and Guatemala, the Central American country’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Pedro Brolo, inaugurated the Honorary Consulate in Toluca de Lerdo, State of Mexico.

Raúl Rocha Cantú was appointed as head, and declared that all people who require a diplomatic link within their immediate reach will be welcomed, and their needs will be met while they are away from their home country.

According to Mario Bucaró, Guatemala’s ambassador in Mexico, the Central American country’s flag “will be raised in one of the state’s main squares and streets, so that Guatemalans and Mexicans unite in a single commitment: together, we will get ahead of this terrible pandemic and make history for our generations”.

The mayor of Toluca, Raymundo Martínez Carbajal, highlighted the importance of the state capital for the country’s economy, pointing out that the State of Mexico has the highest population density and is the one contributing the most to the Gross Domestic Product.

“Toluca has approximately 60,000 economic units, at least a thousand of which are what we call large-scale businesses. One hundred of them, without a doubt, are among the world’s top ten in terms of productive capacity”.

Imanol Reyes, Director of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ Southern and Northern Border of Central America, assured that Mexico’s relationship with Guatemala is a priority.

“We are not only neighbors with a shared history, but we also have a future that we know is intertwined. Guatemala is inextricably linked to the major issues that concern Mexico around the world”, he stated.

The event was attended by Rafael Rodríguez Pellecer, Minister of Labor and Social Welfare of Guatemala; José Ángel López, Minister of Agriculture and Livestock; Deputy Karla Aguilar Talavera; Pablo Peralta García, head of the Secretariat of Economic Development in the Mexiquense entity and Myrna García Morón, president of the Human Rights Commission of the State of Mexico.
