Costa Rica Cozies Up To Republic of San Marino

February 29, 2008
Costa Rica has established diplomatic relations with San Marino, the third smallest state in Europe, the Foreign Ministry announced last week.
Both nations “eager to strengthen the bonds of friendship and cooperation in the political, economic and cultural fields on the basis of mutual respect, the principles of sovereignty, territorial integrity and nonintervention in the internal affairs of other states, as well as with respect to international law and the charter of the United Nations, agree to establish diplomatic relations,” said the text signed by the Costa Rican Ambassador to the United Nations Jorge Urbina and Daniele D. Bodini, ambassador for San Marino.
San Marino lies entirely within southern Italy and is about one-third the size of Washington, D.C. Its population is just  under 30,000, according to the CIA world factbook.
Under the Arias administration, Costa Rica has established relations with 16 other states: Egypt, Bahrain, Kuwait, Jordan, Montenegro, the People’s Republic of China, Lebanon, Uganda, the Republic of Congo, Yemen, Botswana, Swaziland, Burundi, Guinea, Oman and Palestine.
