SECRETARY CLINTON: It’s wonderful to have the new foreign minister of Guatemala here. We have a very close and important relationship with Guatemala. We have a comprehensive agenda that we will be discussing, but I wanted to formally welcome him here in his new capacity and to publicly state how much I’m looking forward to working with you.

FOREIGN MINISTER CABALLEROS: Thank you very much. It is such an honor to be here representing my country. And as Madam Secretary has said, we have an intense bilateral relationship and an agenda we’ll be talking about. Thank you.

SECRETARY CLINTON: Thank you so much, sir.
