Speaking at the opening ceremony, Cavusoglu praised TIKA for its role in humanitarian diplomacy and said the office would enhance cooperation between the two countries.

"Thanks to this office in Mexico that is a gateway to the entire Latin American region, TIKA's services will reach a much wider geography," said Cavusoglu.
