The meeting with Kerry was “very positive; we had expectations; we addressed an agenda of common issues, from politics to investments and business opportunities” The meeting with Kerry was “very positive; we had expectations; we addressed an agenda of common issues, from politics to investments and business opportunities”

Argentine foreign minister Susana Malcorra was also very busy while in Davos, holding a raft of meetings including with US Secretary John Kerry, who at the end of talks twitted, “great discussion on range of topics w FM @SusanaMalcorra. #Argentina remains important friend & partner in region”.

 “Expanding relations is the way to advance in the world community; we must generate trust, which we must win and this also means not accepting impositions” said the minister in a press conference.

“To show concrete results we must prove we are interested in abiding and being part of world rules, so that helps bring investments, export opportunities, trade”, underlined Macorra who added that “this does not mean returning to a model of carnal relations; furthermore the president had a very full agenda of meetings, political, business, financial, and all were much interested in talking with the Argentine president”.

She also pointed out that the fact that the presence of former presidential candidate who opposed Macri in the elections was seen as a strong signal that “Argentina is thinking, acting and has a distinct attitude”

“Argentina is in a plan to insert herself in the space that she deserves in the world”, Malcorra affirmed.

As to the meeting with Kerry, the minister said it was “very positive; we had expectations; we addressed an agenda of common issues, from politics to investments and business opportunities, to those related to climate change, terrorism, corruption and drugs trade”.

“When we addressed climate change, we talked about renewable energies and Kerry was informed of the huge potential of Argentina. He told me about the exponential growth of that business in the US and how many jobs it had created, and gave instructions for a task group to specifically deal with this industry”, said Malcorra.

As to the possible meeting of Macri with Obama, Malcorra confirmed to Kerry that Macri would be attending the world summit on nuclear development regarding “nuclear materials, combating proliferation and the strategy to impede any attempt of nuclear terrorism”

Finally Malcorra brought up the issue of Argentina's ongoing dispute with the speculative funds.

“I mentioned to the State Secretary the firm and serious intention of President Macri to close the dispute once for all with a reasonable solution, concerns about the fact it was the funds that asked for a postponement of the meeting, and that there's no change of attitude from our side. President wants to close and resolve the issue”-.

    “Argentina wants to recover the space it deserves in the world, said Malcorra”
    Various responses occur. Let's start with an assessment of how long argieland has been crap for. Would it be fair to start with 1930 and the Infamous Decade? Electoral fraud, persecution of the political opposition and generalised government corruption. A few years and argieland began its first attempts to recover the space it deserves. It started, and there were implications, when argieland decided to claim a large part of the British Antarctic Territory. It makes you wonder. Antarctica had been there for, at the least, hundreds of thousands of years. Argieland had never been there. Another country wanting to recover the space it deserves, Scotland, gave argieland a little meteorological station because it couldn't afford to run it. Suddenly, in the middle of a global war, argieland decided to claim a bit of Antarctica that already belonged to someone else. Next it decided to have a Dirty War. Makes you wonder why argies didn't bother with WW2. They could have learned from the nazis much sooner. But they tried to make up for it. In an operation reminiscent of the Gleiwitz incident, argieland landed a bunch of marines, posing as scrap metal merchants, on South Georgia. They'd have done better to become scrap metal merchants for real as argieland would soon have plenty of scrap metal. The outcome of that could have been foretold. After having been defeated, argieland reverted to the sneaky part of its character. It became very “friendly”. Unfortunately, Nestor couldn't keep it up. A few more years and he might have had a legitimate claim on some oil. Instead he got rotating British troops and warships. Cretina couldn't think of anything better and began digging the hole in which she will be buried.

    Now, what sort of space does argieland deserve? Could it be a century-long job. Let's never forget when it's right to trust argieland.
