Bolivia's President Evo Morales and Argentina's presidential frontrunner Alberto Fernández met Thursday evening in Santa Cruz de la Sierra to discuss Latin American region and possible future joint actions.

 Argentina's former Cabinet Chief praised Bolivia's economic progress as both leaders shared memories of the times of Presidents Néstor Kirchner and Hugo Chavez. They both agreed to demand former Brazilian head of State, in jail for corruption, be freed at the earliest.

Evo and Alberto celebrated the turn towards progressiveness in the region as they foresaw their respective electoral wins next month - Evo on Oct. 20 and Alberto a week later. They also expressed their wish to see Uruguay's Broad Front as victors.

The Argentine candidate was accompanied by an entourage which included Deputy Felipe Solá, his campaign manager Santiago Cafiero as well as his spokesman Juan Pablo Biondi.  Meanwhile, the Bolivian president attended the meeting with Foreign Minister Diego Pary Rodríguez.

Fernández also intends to meet again with Brazilian former president Lula da Silva at the Curitiba prison, as well as visit Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, before the presidential elections in Argentina on October 27.

    Enrique, then follows stronger ties with Venezuela, Cuba and Iran. Who else need ties with Europe? In the meanwhile both of us will keep living in Canada. Have you been thinking about moving back to Argentina? It would be quite interesting !!!

    Great for Argentina to have Evo Morales presiding neighbour Bolivia; ties between both countries will be stronger under Alberto Fernandez' presidency.

    Now we need freedom for Lula.
