Spain

Burkina Faso–Spain relations are the bilateral and diplomatic relations between these two countries. Burkina Faso does not have an embassy in Spain, but its embassy in Paris, France, is accredited to Spain.[1] and consulates in Almería, Barcelona, Madrid and Valencia.[2] Spain has no embassy in Burkina Faso, but its embassy in Abidjan, Ivory Coast is accredited to Burkina Faso, and a consulate in Ouagadougou.[3]

Diplomatic relations[edit]

Spain maintains diplomatic relations with Burkina Faso since 27 November 1964.[4]

The Spanish Embassy in Abidjan deals, under a multiple accreditation regime, with bilateral relations with Burkina Faso. There is an honorary vice consulate of Spain in Ouagadougou.[4]

Cooperation[edit]

Burkina Faso has not traditionally been a country of cooperation for Spain, nor does it appear in the current Master Plan for Spanish Cooperation (2013–2016) as a country of association. According to the CAD, it is classified as PMA. It is one of the poorest countries in the world, ranking 181 out of a total of 187 in the Human Development Index of United Nations.[5]
