Through Twitter, the Cuban Foreign Ministry informed that the meeting will address issues related to the promotion of cooperation, towards the XXVIII Ibero-American Summit of Heads of State and Government in 2022.
The meeting will also provide an opportunity to discuss post-pandemic recovery and discuss proposals and initiatives aimed at strengthening multilateralism, democracy and people's well-being.
The region's foreign ministers will discuss proposals recently made by the heads of finance, aimed at addressing the economic and debt crises, as well as the issues discussed at the ministerial meetings on health and culture.
Progress will also be made in the selection process of the new Ibero-American Secretary General to replace Rebeca Grynspan, following her appointment as Secretary General of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development.
"Ibero-American foreign ministers approve declaration calling on States to review without delay and refrain from applying unilateral economic, trade and financial measures that affect countries' capacity to confront the #COVID19 pandemic."
