Argentine President Cristina Fernández used her Twitter account on Sunday to celebrate the result of a Greek bailout referendum saying it was “an outright victory of Democracy and Dignity. The Greek people have said NO.”
Today, Greeks voted overwhelmingly No in a referendum rejecting new austerity terms for fresh financial aid would set their country on a path out of the Euro.
In several tweets written in English, the Argentine president went on to say “nobody can be asked to sign their own death certificate. The words of President Kirchner still resound” “We Argentines understand what this is about. We hope Europe and its leaders understand the message of the polls,” she stressed.
The head of state then wrote: “Nobody can be asked to sign their own death certificate. The words of President Kirchner still resound. At the UN General Assembly in 2003 he said: ‘The dead do not pay their debts.’
Cristina Fernández were in line with those from Venezuela president Nicolás Maduro who described the No vote as a 'great victory'.
A great victory against financial terrorism from the International Monetary Fund, blasted Maduro at the end of the country's independence celebrations.
