Turkey – Political Relations with El Salvador
The relations between our country and El Salvador remain very limited due to the geographical distance and the concentration of both countries on their territories for many years. However, more attention has been paid to the territory of Latin America and the Caribbean, which has gained momentum in recent years, the opening of new embassies in the region, the launching of TICA development and technical cooperation projects and establishment of institutional relations with regional organizations and the establishment of institutional relations with El Salvador as well.
Our bilateral relations with El Salvador have begun to develop rapidly after our country’s Central American Integration System (SICA) became an observer member in February 2015. We are the Embassy of Guatemala to El Salvador. We have an Honorary Consulate in San Salvador. El Salvador’s Embassy in Berlin is accredited to my country. There is also an Honorary Consulate in Istanbul.
