10 Leaders, Spanish King Confirmed for Ibero-American Summit

BOGOTA – At least 10 heads of government and Spain’s King Felipe VI have confirmed their participation at the 25th Ibero-American Summit to be held in Cartagena, Colombia, on Oct. 28-29, Colombian Foreign Minister Maria Angela Holguin announced on Thursday.

The minister told reporters that among the leaders who have said they would be present are those from Andorra, Chile, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Panama, Peru, Portugal and the Dominican Republic, along with the summit’s host, Colombian President Juan Manual Santos.

Holguin that she also expects the vice presidents of Argentina, Costa Rica and Uruguay to attend, as well as the foreign ministers of Brazil, Paraguay, Cuba and El Salvador.

Of the 22 countries comprising the Ibero-American Community, the only ones – so far – who have not reported which of their top officials will attend the summit are Bolivia, Nicaragua and Venezuela.

Holguin emphasized the attendance of Felipe VI and said she regretted the fact the Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy will not be able to be on hand because the summit coincides with parliamentary investiture procedures.

The foreign minister emphasized that the newly selected United Nations secretary general, Antonio Guterres, who will take over on Jan. 1 from Ban Ki-moon, will also be at the summit.

The meeting has the theme of education, youth and entrepreneurship and will be the first biennial Ibero-American summit after the gatherings were held yearly from 1991 through 2014.

The 25th Summit will be preceded on Oct. 27-28 by the 11th Ibero-American Business Meeting, expected to draw some 500 European and Latin American businessmen.
