Merkel Hopes to Advance EU-Mercosur Agreement despite Difficulties

BERLIN – German Chancellor Angela Merkel assured on Tuesday that it will be possible to advance the trade agreement between the European Union and the Southern Common Market, or Mercosur, while acknowledging the difficulties in the agricultural file.

At a press conference with Argentine President Mauricio Macri, Merkel welcomed the renewed interest of Mercosur in the agreement and recalled that the talks have been frozen for a long time, admitting that it will not end in a few days.

As expected, she added that the agricultural file is one of the most complicated because it does not come in the clear interests of countries like Argentina and, in the European Union, France and Germany.

Macri admitted that in the past Argentina had delayed these talks but confirmed its interest now in moving “as quickly as possible” towards the agreement and stressed the need for France, a country where agriculture has great weight, to be more flexible.

Marci added that he trusts the leadership of Germany.
