US Secretary of State John Kerry congratulates next Costa Rican President Luis Guillermo Solís
U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry put out a release this morning sending regards to Costa Rica’s President-elect, Luis Guillermo Solís. Kerry highlighted the historically friendly relationship between the U.S. and Costa Rica in his brief remarks. The statement is four paragraphs of the gentle palaver you would expect in this type of diplomatic situation.
We reproduced Kerry’s full statement below:
We congratulate Luis Guillermo Solis on his election as the next President of Costa Rica.
The partnership between the United States and Costa Rica has a long history, and reflects many issues of common interest, including energy, education, citizen security, job creation, and economic growth.
As President Obama made clear during his visit last year, the United States and Costa Rica share a close friendship based on a commitment to democratic values and human rights.
We stand ready to build on those common values with the Solis administration in the years to come.
