Argentine president Mauricio Macri outlined on Thursday his administration's foreign policy during the message to Congress when he stressed, with an overall non specific commitment, “we believe in the unity and cooperation of Latin America and the world”, and in strengthening democracy as the only possibility to solving the problems of diverse societies.

 Contrary to what happened in the three previous inaugurations of Argentine presidents, (Nestor Kirchner and two for Cristina Fernandez), there was no specific mention to the Falklands/Malvinas claim and sovereignty dispute.

But with the pledged spirit of overcoming the times of confrontation, “obviously we will stand by all our sovereign claims and our values without this impeding a normal relationship with all countries of the world”.

“To our brothers of the Americas and the world. We have a new vision of politics. We are the children of our times and we try to understand them without prejudice or rancor. We believe in the unity and cooperation of Latin America and the world, in the strengthening of democracy as the only possibility of solving the problems of diverse societies. It is necessary to overcome the times of confrontation”, said Macri looking to where the foreign leaders and visitors were following the ceremony.

    He has to be careful not to fuel the opposition. CFK has pledged to make his life difficult and she will at very opportunity. Opposition are supposed to do that but in the interest of the country rather than out of spite, as in the case of CFK.

    Macri is right to make broad, positive statements about future foreign relations.

    CFK will find it very hard to mount an effective opposition from Marcos Paz prison .
    SIDE and AFIP must have roomfuls of files on her and her cronies .
    Because of the Iranian connection , the NSA , CIA , FBI and Homeland Security will have roomfuls as well .
    I think you will find we have heard the last from her .
    Here is a prediction to match Malens :
    Her coke snorting son will either be assassinated or have a mysterious accident in the next 18 months .
