North America-SICA Dialogue on Democratic Security


Date: 04/30/2013 Description: Heads of Delegation of the North America-SICA Dialogue on Democratic Security - State Dept Image

Canada, Mexico and the United States proposed high-level security talks with the Central America Integration System (SICA)1 in 2010 to strengthen regional cooperation on security and promote effective and measurable results in combating transnational crime and violence. The North America-SICA Dialogue on Democratic Security brings together representatives from the seven SICA member states, the United States, Mexico, and Canada and merge the separate security dialogues that Mexico, Canada, and the United States maintained with SICA into one regional mechanism. This forum allows synchronicity of effort, enhances regional coordination on security programming and provides SICA and its international partners with an additional forum to collaborate on regional security initiatives associated with the SICA regional security strategy.

_____
1SICA is the Spanish acronym for the Central American Integration System. SICA member states include Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Panama. The Dominican Republic is an associate member state. Mexico and the United States are observer states to SICA.
