US Values Spain’s Advice in Dialogue with Latin America

MIAMI – US Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly said on Thursday that Spain is a great partner in the dialogue with Latin America because it offers good quality advice about the region.

In an interview with EFE, Kelly spoke of the important role Spain is playing at the Conference on Prosperity and Security in Central America, which is being held in Miami and at which Spanish Secretary of State for International Cooperation and Ibero-America, Fernando Garcia Casas, is participating.

Spain is far from the US, although not really, said Kelly, adding that he knows that Madrid is very economically active in Latin America, that it frequently gives good quality advice and, for some time, has been a “window on Europe,” which is very important for many countries.

Spain is a great country that devotes itself to providing contacts for the world with Latin America and South America, Kelly added.

The Homeland Security chief served as the head of the US Southern Command from 2012-2016 and said in the interview that it was in that role that he became aware of the important role played by Spain.

Many people do not know that Spain is very involved in questions about Latin America, but when that becomes known it makes sense to people, he said.

Latin America is one of the main destinations for Spanish investment abroad, according to the Spanish Foreign Trade Institute (ICEX).

In addition, the Ibero-American Summits, the first one of which was held in 1991, have been gaining depth and content as they have become one of the most important forums for dealing with multilateral issues, exchanging experiences and adopting common positions vis-a-vis global and regional challenges.

The latest Ibero-American Conference of Heads of State and Government, the 25th, was held in Cartagena, Colombia, in October 2016.
