Jean-Baptiste Lemoyne, Minister of State attached to the Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs of France, met on 13th of March with Rodolfo Piza Rocafort, Minister of the Presidency of Costa Rica.

They addressed the negotiation process on establishing a Global Pact for the Environment, underway within the United Nations. The diplomatic and cultural relations between Costa Rica and France are traditionally good and converge on the fight against the effects of climate change. The two countries intend to strengthen even more their bilateral cooperation by establishing academic exchanges in the scientific field through the cooperation project between the Pasteur Institute and Costa Rica's Tropical Diseases Research Center, as well as in the economic sphere.

Moreover, the meeting provided an opportunity for an exchange of views on regional issues, notably the situation in Venezuela.
