"We will always keep gratitude to this generous country that welcomed us after the coup in Bolivia," Arce tweeted.
Bolivia's President Luis Arce on Wednesday began an official visit to Mexico. His action has a high symbolic significance as he received political asylum in this country after the U.S-backed coup led by Jeanine Añez in Bolivia in 2019.
Arce's visit takes place on the occasion of the 190th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Mexico and Bolivia.
The Bolivian president will visit the memorial to the "Hero Children" in Mexico City's Chapultepec Park and attend a Senate's honor session. The local authorities will also declared him a "Distinguished Guest."
On Thursday, Arce will deliver a speech on "Chakan Putum Victory Day" to recall the resistance led by Indigenous people against Spain's colonization.
