Macri: Submarine Search is Very Difficult

BUENOS AIRES – Argentine President Mauricio Macri said on Tuesday that there have been “very difficult moments” in the intense search for the navy submarine with 44 crewmembers on board that has been missing and incommunicado somewhere in the South Atlantic for almost a week.

“In these difficult hours, I would not want to begin (my remarks) without once again sending my full support and affection to the relatives of the crew of the ARA San Juan. I think that even foreigners know ... what we’re going through,” said the president during the opening of the 2017 Americas Regional Meeting of the Open Government Partnership in Buenos Aires.

The ongoing search for the sub off the Argentine coast is being aided by personnel from several nations.

“We’re continuing to do everything possible, deploying all available national and international means to find them as soon as possible,” he said.

Participating in the search operation are Chile, Brazil, the US, the United Kingdom, Colombia, Uruguay and Peru.

On Monday, the president visited the relatives of the 44 crewmembers in the town of Mar del Plata, in Buenos Aires province, where the submarine is based and where most of the crew live.

In recalling that meeting, Macri said on Tuesday that “these are very difficult times for them and for everyone.”

The ARA San Juan had set sail a week ago Monday from the far southern port of Ushuaia and was en route to its base in Mar del Plata when communications with it were lost.
