We really don't have an international image, many dont see geographic strategic that Central America has along other things, and it's time for us to change that we are going to get more involved international wise, take the decision we have to take and do what we have to do.
We will aslo work on the bitter relations we have with "certain countries", (thats if we even have some) i will give recommendations but the presidency and ministry of foreign affairs.
