This afternoon, Congressman Henry Cuellar (D-TX) met with President Luis Guillermo Solis of Costa Rica to discuss issues of migration, drug trafficking, and international cooperation.


“I want to thank President Solis and the delegation for doing me the honor of visiting my office in Washington,” said Congressman Cuellar. “Costa Rica is an important U.S. partner, and I am always glad to meet with their President and representatives on issues of mutual interest.”



President Solis and Congressman Cuellar were joined by a delegation from Costa Rica, including Dr. Roman Macaya, Ambassador to the United States; Manuel González, Minister of Foreign Affairs; Sergio Alfaro, Minister of the Presidency; and Alexander Mora, Minister of Foreign Trade.


In December 2015, Congressman Cuellar participated in a Congressional Delegation to Costa Rica to discuss the Cuban migrant crisis at that time, among other issues.


Later today, Congressman Cuellar will also meet with Mexican Ambassador Gerónimo Gutiérrez.
