“We don't want to import messes to Argentina, we already have our own messes,” Felipe Solá said. “We don't want to import messes to Argentina, we already have our own messes,” Felipe Solá said.

The Peronist Felipe Solá, one of the candidates for minister of foreign affairs in the government of the president-elect of Argentina, Alberto Fernández, said Monday that the next administration, to renegotiate the debt, will not change its vision regarding Venezuela.

“We are not going to modify our vision on issues that we have defined, and Venezuela is one of them, due to the debt to the United States,” said Solá from Mexico, where he is integrating a delegation that accompanies Fernandez on his first foreign tour.

In a dialogue with the Argentine radio station El Destape, Solá said that he “do not expect people to think exactly like us, what we have to do is work with everyone, in the unit, except in places where there are pitfalls that are going to be raised.”

The president-elect, who assumes on December 10, met Monday with the president of that country, Andrés Manuel López Obrador.

Before that meeting, former Buenos Aires governor said both leaders “quite” agree concerning Venezuela. Anyway, he clarified: “We don't want to import messes to Argentina, we already have our own messes.”

Several countries in the region, headed by the outgoing administration of Mauricio Macri and the United States, have planted before the authoritarian drift of the government of Nicolás Maduro, coordinating sanctions against senior officials in Venezuela, accused of corruption. However, multilateral instances such as the Lima Group will be weakened with the departure of Argentina, announced by the then candidate Fernandez in early October.

“The blockades to Venezuela showed that they are ineffective, they only aim to get Maduro out,” said Solá.

On the other hand, the foreign minister said that the link with Brazil “has become thorny and difficult” due to the statements of President Jair Bolsonaro, but said the country’s vice-president will attend Fernandez’s assumption.

    Alberto Fernandez' position in regards to Venezuela is clear: No foreign intervention, and especially not foreign military intervention. Dialogue among the parties should be conducted to find an outcome benefiting the population, with the end of economic sanctions to the country being an important step ahead.

    A new hope is dawning in Latin America.

    Glad to hear they are supporting the murderous Maduro. I'd love to see the vicious, murderous, racist, genocidal ,Anti-Semitic and perverted Kamerad/Komrade Rique suffer the same fate as Fernando Albán. Indeed , I would view a film of it as “ephemeral art.” :)
