Her Excellency Sandra Geraldine Alvarado, the new non-resident Ambassador of the Republic of El Salvador to Antigua and Barbuda, formally presented her credentials to senior officials of the government in St. John’s.
Ambassador-designate Alvarado held brief discussions with Foreign Affairs, Immigration and Trade Minister, E.P Chet Greene, as part of her series of courtesy calls.
During the discussion, Minister Greene noted that both Antigua and Barbuda and El Salvador share a similar vision of seeking to improve living standards for their citizens.
The minister, who has travelled to El Salvador while he served as a FIFA official, said Antigua and Barbuda favours a region where each country may pursue its own path toward development on its own terms.
Therefore, he added, Antigua and Barbuda would support El Salvador as it seeks to improve its economy and policies that would bring direct and indirect benefits to the Salvadorian people.
The Republic of El Salvador, which gained independence from Spain in
1821, is Central America’s smallest and most populous country.
It is bordered by Guatemala and Honduras.
