7/29/2021
​The Minister for Foreign Affairs, European Union and Cooperation, José Manuel Albares Bueno, held his first conference call with the US Secretary of State, Antony Blinken.

During the call, they addressed the state of bilateral relations between two close allies and the need to defend the fundamental values that we share against a more complicated international backdrop than in recent decades. The Minister for Foreign Affairs highlighted that “the United States is a fundamental ally in defending our shared values.”

Minister Albares also expressed his satisfaction at the proposed appointment of the new ambassador in Madrid and expressed his interest in this being confirmed shortly so that she can begin her work.

They also discussed the global situation and the role of the main international players. The minister congratulated his counterpart on the return by the USA to the Paris Agreements and explored areas of joint collaboration on shared priorities on the global agenda. They also discussed issues relating to mutual security and exchanged first impressions on the upcoming NATO Summit in Madrid.

They also spoke about the situation in Latin America – a region particularly hard hit by COVID-19, both at a health and an economic level. In this regard, they agreed to explore opportunities for cooperation between the two countries in the region, particularly in Central America.
