This is Marco Vinicio Vargas Pereira. Before this post, he served as the Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs and also as Costa Rica's ambassador to Uruguay.

During their brief meeting, gifts were exchanged. The Pope gave him a copy of his apostolic exhortation, Evangelii Gaudium, adding that it's not enough to just read it.
