Estonian delegation meeting with Minister of Foreign Affairs of Honduras Ms. María Dolores Agüero Lara.

On 4-6 March, the Estonian Foreign Ministry delegation visited Honduras. In the capital Tegucigalpa Ambassador Margus Kolga and diplomat Mari Tomingas met with Vice President Maria Antonia Rivera Rosales and Minister of Foreign Affairs María Dolores Agüero Lara. Additionally, consultations were held with the officials of the Civil Registry (Registro Nacional de las Personas, RNP) and with the Head of EU Delegation in Honduras, Ambassador Alessandro Palmero. The meeting with Vice President Rivera focused on Estonia’s UN Security Council campaign and the possibilities to enhance bilateral cooperation with Estonia in the area of e-governance. The president of Honduras has included digital transformation among his priorities and wishes to see rapid progress in this area during his term of office. Estonia is seen as an example and there is interest to learn from Estonia’s experience. The Civil Registry is already cooperating with Estonia and has taken x-road platform as the premise for the digitalisation of tis databases.

At the meeting in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Minister Agüero proposed to sign a Memorandum of Understanding for holding regular political consultations. Honduras as a small state values cooperation between small states in international organisations and in the enforcement of international law, which coincides with Estonian views and interests. “Small states can enhance their influence in the Security Council, if the ten elected members of the Council cooperate more and work together with the aim of achieving common political goals. Ten votes is a significant power in the decision-making of the Security Council”, noted the Head of Estonian Delegation Ambassador Kolga after the meeting.

From Honduras, the Estonian delegation proceeded to the Republic of Cuba.
