Admin Antony J. Blinken Plus Panamanian Foreign Minister Janaina Tewaney Before Their Meeting

As much countries in the world have also experienced decreased levels of trust in their own democratic institutions, Panama continues to be leading efforts to build citizens’ trust in their government.   And even during the most difficult moments – recently, in January and July – we all proved that only through dialogue and peaceful quality we could solve our own problems.   In fact , I me personally was part of the delegation which was negotiating in Panama peace and stability, and by means of that negotiation, we can at this point say that we are stable plus strong again and, since allies, we stand together as brothers and sisters.
But I would really like to start again with the most important part, our strong connection.   We share, like i said, strong values, and we are aligned on some of the most essential issues of our time.   And I want to convey the message from the president plus vice president that we are committed to the rules-based planet order and also on the wellbeing of the international community and the region.
SECRETARY BLINKEN:     Thank you so much.   Delightful.   Thank you, everyone.
We have been also committed to human legal rights, as I told you.   We have been taking care of migrants, and we have got given and provided the due services that they request when they’re coming out from it.   And we thank the U. S. for all the support that has been given.   We have been also trying to encourage the particular south and international – the regional community to understand that this solution can only – we can only reach a simple solution through multilateralism and regional responsibility.   And again, we share the same ideas about this.   So as you will see, Panama is a very important best friend for the U. S. for the reason that sense, and we feel the Oughout. S. is a very important ally for us in that sense as well.
FOREIGN MINISTER TEWANEY:   On behalf of the President Cortizo plus Vice President Carrizo, I would like to convey a very warm relation, and also from the people of Panama.   As you said, there are plenty of values also, common beliefs we share, democratic beliefs, human rights, and the rule of law.   Therefore that’s, I think, the core base of our strong relationship.   I think we have fulfilled before when I was minister of government very briefly, and now it’s my reverance to officially meet you as my counterpart, my homologue.   As you met – the team is going to be here providing some extra details you find useful for the conference.
Together with those words, I would like to – I don’t know in case you have other points in the agenda, or we can continue the particular discussion.
And very recently, we hope we can do the same plus spread that rule in Latin America also.   So we intend to continue with those efforts.   Compact country of panama has always been seen and it has already been respected for that role of creating, and convening, and making – composing peace in the region.   And we want to remain as such.
SECRETARY BLINKEN:     Well, good morning, everyone.   It’s a true pleasure to have Foreign Ressortchef (umgangssprachlich) Tewaney here in Washington.   Panama is a highly appreciated partner of the United States.   We’ve been doing a lot of interact these past couple of years, really working to advance the common objectives that we have for our people and more broadly for the region.   We’ve been working together to enhance regional security, to improve democratic institutions, to advance inclusive economic growth.   And I’m looking forward to discussing with the minister all of those issues.
Of course , Panama can also be a critical partner for us and many more countries in the region in addressing the challenges of irregular migration.   We are facing together what is truly an historic challenge: there are a lot more people on the move around the world – more than 100 million – than at any time in recorded history.   And of course, within the hemisphere that we share, we can say that as well and we see that too – whether it is from South america, from Haiti, from Cuba, from Guatemala, from Honduras, from El Salvador, from Nicaragua, from Venezuela, plus more  – Ecuador.   People are on the move and there is certainly increasingly a shared sense of responsibility that we just about all have for managing, inside a humane and orderly way, migration in our hemisphere.   So I look forward to that discussion as well.
We understand the challenges pertaining to migration that the U. S i9000. is facing but we have been facing too.   And we’re here again to help each other.   There are many scopes and actions that we can take in order to address the migration issue, and we are right here also to convey the information that we already working with the particular team to find out some methods.
But welcome.   It’s excellent to have you here.
So as well as regards to ADD, we have an honor in that Wilsonian feeling of brotherhood, sharing ethical and values.   We now have led the ADD as well as the purpose to create an facilities in which we can cherish individuals values too – not just talking about this, but we feel the need to create an facilities in which we can spread those people democratic and human right values throughout the region.   We have started definitely with the ADD.   It has been very successful because we live – we also believe in development, freedom, democracy.
As you know, the Darien Jungle is a geographically very dense jungle, and want to – I mean, we now have spoken in the region, and we have tried to make efforts and to convey the message that this jungle of Darien is not a safe route.   And it should never be used like a route because it’s the jungle that we have the duty to guard, too.   We are devoted to the climate change.   We’re committed to the environmental values also.   We treasure that, and I’m sure the U. S. as well.   So we want to retain it that way.
