United Kingdom opens new embassy in El Salvador
The United Kingdom will continue to increase engagement with Latin America pledged Foreign Office Minister Hugo Swire during the official opening of the UK new embassy in El Salvador.
The decision to re-open an Embassy in El Salvador was made in May 2011. This followed a shift in UK policy on Latin America, summed up by the Foreign Secretary William Hague’s 2010 Canning House speech where he said that the UK had not devoted enough attention to the region.
Minister Swire was joined by new Ambassador Linda Cross and Salvador authorities when he toured the new premises and met staff who will be working at the embassy.
