Costa Rica Presidential Elections

Costa Rica Presidential Elections

Press Statement
John Kerry
Secretary of State
Washington, DC
April 7, 2014

We congratulate Luis Guillermo Solis on his election as the next President of Costa Rica.

The partnership between the United States and Costa Rica has a long history, and reflects many issues of common interest, including energy, education, citizen security, job creation, and economic growth.

As President Obama made clear during his visit last year, the United States and Costa Rica share a close friendship based on a commitment to democratic values and human rights.

We stand ready to build on those common values with the Solis administration in the years to come.

ENDS
