President François Hollande will be visiting Argentina next month, the country’s prime minister, Manuel Valls, confirmed to President Mauricio Macri in Davos, where the two leaders discussed the remaining details of the trip that will include stops in Uruguay, Peru and Argentina.

 According to reports from the Argentine news agency, talks were cordial and held in Spanish. Valls thanked Macri for his goodwill and support regarding the terrorist attacks in Paris last November, which killed 137 and left 400 wounded, as well as the attacks against the Charlie Hebdo magazine a year ago.

Macri, for his part, proposed France agree on an exchange of offers to advance a Mercosur-European Union agreement, which the new government wants to speed up in tandem with its trade bloc partners. France is seen as one of the obstacles on the European side to sealing a deal.

Macri also met with Swiss President Johann Schneider-Ammann, who said his country was “very enthusiastic” about the possibility of extending and deepening the bilateral relationship and the trade and cooperation links that exist with Argentina.

Switzerland said it supported a rapprochement from Argentina to the members of the European Free Trade Association (EFTA), a commercial bloc where the Swiss are joined by Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein, and which pushed for the liberalization of trade among themselves and with the rest of the world.

    “talks were cordial and held in Spanish.”

    None of the French knew WTF the others were Jibber-jabbering about but it all went swimmingly!

    12,292 current verbs in official Jibber-jabber and an unimaginable number of incomprehensible dialects in SA.

    No wonder the stinking poor are unintelligible in Uruguay as well as being lazy bastards sucking Mujica's hand-outs for doing nothing.

    I do hope that Hollande remembers to bring his body armour when he comes to Uruguay. This is bound to get the Gitmo's off their arses for once and try something., yet another Mujica legacy.

    Good thing that French does not come to Brazil! French are arch-enemies of the Lusitanian.

    Update on the Gitmo's: two of them are in front of a Judge for physically abusing their Uruguayo wives!

    Two white Uruguayo women converted to the Shiite 'religion' before any thought of Gitmo's entered Mujicas laughingly called brain, BUT they decided to marry two of them.

    Now they are claiming that they have to wear a black sack, get up at 04.30 and PRAY before starting the breakfast and then spending the rest of the day working in the house looking after their husbands (who don't lift a finger to help). When they complained these same husbands knocked the living shit out of them.

    Who would believe that could happen! Ha, ha, ha, ha.

    The cases are on-going.
