The Ministry of Foreign Relations (MRREE; Spanish: Ministerio de Relaciones Exteriores) conducts Uruguay's foreign relations with other countries. It is commonly referred to in Uruguayan media and diplomatic jargon as the Palacio Santos, after the historical building which houses the ministry (originally the residence of President Máximo Santos in the late 19th century), located in downtown Montevideo.

The Minister of Foreign Relations is also known as Canciller. Since 1 March 2010 the Ministry is headed by Luis Almagro.
