Peruvian President Martin Vizcarra attends the 26th Ibero-American Summit, under the theme "A thriving, inclusive, and sustainable Ibero-America."

On this occasion, the Head of State was received by his Guatemalan counterpart Jimmy Morales at Casa Santo Domingo.

Afterward, all the participants —King Felipe VI of Spain among them— posed for the official photo of this gathering. 

The Inca country's attendance is aimed at boosting political and economic cooperation among Latin American nations, as well as Spain, Portugal, and Andorra. 

Likewise, the top official will participate in the I and II Heads of State and Government sessions, as well as the Pro-Tempore Secretary handing over and closing ceremonies. 

The event will place special emphasis on the search for mechanisms to complement the efforts undertaken by countries to fulfill the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

Furthermore, it will address gender equality, rights of indigenous and Agro-descendent communities, people with disabilities, climate change, public administration, as well as international cooperation. 

The Summit —held annually since 1991— is the Ibero-American Conference's highest decision-making body, convening Heads of State and Government of 22 nations.
