At the end of Chancellor Roberto Ampuero's working day, which included meetings with the Ministers of Foreign Affairs of Germany and France, the Secretary of State highlighted the importance of these meetings for Chile's foreign policy. "Strengthening cooperation and political dialogue with world-class actors is key for Chile," he said.

This afternoon, the Chancellor met in Paris with the French Minister of Foreign Affairs, Jean-Yves Le Drian, on which occasion they discussed the issues that occupy Chile and France in their bilateral relationship, such as technological innovation, investment, bilateral trade, education, scholarships "and the possibilities of increasing and increasing France's presence both within Latin America and in the Pacific Alliance, mainly through Chile".

The head of the national diplomacy emphasized that "with Minister Le Drian we also addressed an issue that is very important for Chile, the extradition of Palma Salamanca, who is requested by the Chilean authorities with respect to actions related to the assassination of Senator Jaime Guzmán and also to the kidnapping of Mr. Cristián Edwards".

He added that "we have stressed to Minister Le Drian that Chile is a country where institutions work, are independent and the judiciary is also independent".

Earlier this morning, Minister Ampuero held a bilateral meeting in Berlin with his German counterpart Heiko Maas. After this day the Chancellor culminated his tour of Europe which also took him to Brussels, where he participated in the II Meeting of CELAC-EU ministers.
