U.S. officials arrive to prepare Obama visit

April 3, 2013

A group of 40 officials from the United States government arrived in Costa Rica on Wednesday to prepare logistics for the visit of President Barack Obama.

Obama will visit Costa Rica in early May to participate in the summit of the Central American Integration System (SICA).

The president will also have a bilateral meeting with Costa Rica’s President Laura Chinchilla.

Communications Minister Francisco Chacón confirmed that the U.S. staff will analyze all aspects of the locations where the president will visit.

Foreign Minister Enrique Castillo said that in the coming days Costa Rica’s government will send formal invitations to all Central American presidents, although the president of Guatemala, Otto Pérez Molina, already confirmed his participation last Monday.

Obama will visit Costa Rica May 3-4 after a stop in Mexico the previous day.
