The two ministers discussed all bilateral issues, including economic, academic and cultural issues. Laurent Fabius also reviewed our cooperation with respect to climate disruption and the defense of human rights.
The relationship between France and Costa Rica has traditionally been good, due to a convergence of views on many multilateral subjects (environmental protection, sustainable development, combatting climate change, combatting terrorism and corruption).
The visit (private) by the Ecology Minister in December 2008, followed by the missions of our Ambassador responsible for climate change negotiations, at the time Mr. Brice Lalonde, have provided for establishing more ambitious bilateral collaboration regarding environmental protection. In this manner, our two countries worked together prior to the Copenhagen summit, but also in preparation for COP 16.
