Ministry of Foreign Relations (Uruguay)

Palacio Santos, seat of the Chancellary of Uruguay.

The Ministry of Foreign Relations (MRREE; Spanish: Ministerio de Relaciones Exteriores) conducts Uruguay's foreign relations with other countries.

'Palacio Santos'

It is commonly referred to in Uruguayan media and diplomatic jargon as the Palacio Santos, after the historical building which since 1955 has housed the ministry (originally the residence of President Máximo Santos in the late 19th century). It is located in downtown Montevideo.

This building is one of the major historic structures in the Uruguayan capital, and has been the subject of prominent documentary publicity.[1]
