Spanish Minister of Foreign Affairs, European Union, and Cooperation Meets with U.S. Secretary of State and Special Presidential Envoy for Climate in Paris

Minister Albares just completed three intense days in Paris, where he spoke at the OECD Ministerial and held bilateral and other relevant meetings, during which he discussed the current international arena, analyzed energy markets, and expressed his concern for climate change, among other topics of conversation.

10/6/2021
Taking advantage of all three being in Paris for the OECD Ministerial, Minister Albares held fruitful meetings with U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry.
During the meeting with the Secretary of State, Secretary Blinken thanked Minister Albares for the joint effort of Spain and the U.S. to facilitate the evacuation of Afghans from Afghanistanan and for his collaboration during this new period in order to assure that humanitarian aid reaches its intended destination.
They also discussed issues regarding security and defense in Europe and the EU’s strategic autonomy, as well as agreeing to work together on the Madrid Strategic Concept for the 2022 NATO Summit in Spain.
Furthermore, Minister Albares and Secretary Blinken addressed the situation in Latin America, particularly in Venezuela, where both agreed on the need for open dialogue between all parties, taking place in Mexico, as well as their concern for the situation in Nicaragua.


This meeting followed one that took place the day prior with U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry. The Minister defended Spain’s commitment in the fight against global warming and expressed his hope that at the UN Climate Change Conference – COP26 – in Glasgow, the financing objectives for the fight against climate change and decarbonization in 2030 and 2050 will be achieved.
