Argentina Examining Possibility of Macri-Vazquez Meeting in July

MONTEVIDEO – Argentina is studying the possibility that President Mauricio Macri could meet in Montevideo with his Uruguayan counterpart, Tabare Vazquez, around July 9, the bicentennial of Argentina’s Declaration of Independence, Argentine officials said on Wednesday.

Argentina’s ambassador in Uruguay, Guillermo Montenegro, on Wednesday in Montevideo placed a floral offering at the monument to Uruguayan liberator Jose Gervasio Artigas at one of the events commemorating the 206th anniversary of the May Revolution, which on May 25, 2810, began the process that culminated in Argentine independence.

“The internal agenda of (President Macri) is really complex and so is the international one, but he has already showed that he has a very special affection for Uruguay, it being the first country he visited as president of Argentina,” Montenegro said.

“From my position, I’m making great efforts for him to come, above all understanding what the relationship he has with President Tabare (Vazquez), which is also very close. For us, it would be very good,” he added.

Meanwhile, when asked about whether it is necessary to make Mercosur (the trade bloc comprised of Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay, Uruguay and Venezuela) more flexible, Montenegro said that the possibility of each member state negotiating bilateral accords outside the group “is very valid” as long as it does not negatively affect Mercosur.

Along those lines, he noted the need for the South American bloc members to move forward together “as a region ... to be able to confront the stronger” powers and blocs.

Also present at the commemoration ceremony on Wednesday were Uruguayan Foreign Minister Rodolfo Nin Novoa and his deputy, Jose Luis Cancela.
