A delegation of Argentine lawmakers will be visiting UK beginning Monday invited by the Inter Parliamentary Union, IPU, British chapter, with the purpose of establishing closer links at legislative level with their peers.

 The agenda includes meetings with Sir Alan Duncan, Foreign Office minister for Europe and the Americas who was recently in Argentina to sign the September statement to re-launch UK/Argentine relations in a more constructive spirit including a chapter on the South Atlantic regarding resources, trade, flights, and humanitarian and maritime issues.

Meetings with Labor MP Lindsay Hoyle and the Lord Mayor of London Andrew Parmley have also been scheduled.

The visit which includes members of the Lower House and Senate was confirmed by British embassy in Buenos Aires sources, and looks to advance “legislative diplomacy”. Argentina is also a member of IPU.

The delegation is headed by the Senate president Federico Pinedo, Senator Lucila Crexell from the Neuquén Popular Movement, Rodolfo Uturbery and Carlos Espínola from the Victory Front and Lower House members, Margarita Stolbizer, Eduardo Amadeo and Alejandro Grandinetti.

Following Monday's meetings with peers and Sir Alan Duncan, on Tuesday the delegation will attend a meeting with Argentine ambassador in London, Carlos Sersale Di Cerisano.

The Argentine lawmakers have also been invited to Scotland where they will be meeting with members of the Scottish parliament and will visit companies with interests in Argentina.
