On the 14th of Sep, 1984, Mexico and Antigua and Barbuda established diplomatic relations, soon after the ”Land of 365 Beaches” attained its independence.
The 35th anniversary of the beginning of that friendship is an opportunity which allows us to recognize the achievements accomplished from a relation based on dialogue and cooperation. Both countries, as Caribbean nations, share a common geography, democratic convictions, and development aspirations, as well as the same challenges. The past 35 years has allowed us to strengthen our relations, particularly in terms of positive political dialogue, and to find coincidences in regional and international forums, as well as in the promotion of development cooperation.
This historic 35 year milestone of diplomatic relations is a testament to the continued closeness and solidarity that have existed between the two nations, particularly in various areas of development cooperation.
On this important occasion, Mexico expresses its willingness to further enhance its collaboration with Antigua and Barbuda, to promote the closely shared values and interests between the two countries, and wishes prosperity and success to the people of Antigua and Barbuda.
