European Parliament President on State Visit to Argentina

BUENOS AIRES – The president of the European Parliament, Germany’s Martin Schulz, laid a floral tribute at the monument in Buenos Aires of Gen. Jose de San Martin, hero of Argentine independence, and so began his brief state visit to the South American country.

Laying flowers at the foot of the statue of San Martin, in the plaza that bears his name, took place around 9:30 a.m., after which Schulz moved on to the Argentine Foreign Ministry where he will be decorated by Argentine Deputy Foreign Minister Carlos Foradori.

The Argentine Foreign Ministry announced that after the private meeting, the two will hold a joint press conference at the same government office.

Later the head of the European Parliament will visit Remembrance Park in Buenos Aires to pay tribute to the victims of the last Argentine dictatorship (1976-1983).

To be discussed on this visit will be trade negotiations between the EU and Mercosur – an alliance of Paraguay, Uruguay, Brazil, Argentina and Venezuela – and the new stage of relations between the European bloc and Argentina, inaugurated after President Mauricio Macri took office last December.

The press corps of the ex-foreign minister and current president of Mercosur, Jorge Taiana, said the possibilities of “integration” of the EU and Mercosur and “the function of their parliaments in that process” will be analyzed during the meeting.

Schulz is also scheduled to have a brief meeting with Macri at the Casa Rosada presidential office on Monday afternoon.

After Buenos Aires, Schulz goes to Bogota for a meeting with Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos and other officials.
