Is this a new chapter for Chile?
Days after the rescue of 33 miners in Chile, President Sebastian Pinera is in the UK as part of a European tour. Is this a defining moment for Chile?
Mr Pinera has met the Queen and Prime Minister David Cameron, and has given his hosts a fragment of rock from the San Jose mine where a group of miners were trapped for 69 days.
The rescue at the San Jose mine attracted worldwide attention and is still being celebrated in Chile. Mr Pinera said that his country's successful rescue operation had given a good example to the world of "commitment, courage, faith, hope and unity".
Do you live in Chile? Does the Chilean mine rescue represent a turning point for the country? Does the incident provide an example of unity to the rest of the world? What does this mean for Chile's place on the international stage?
