“Obviously we will stand by all our sovereign claims”, anticipated Macri

Argentine president Mauricio Macri outlined on Thursday his administration’s foreign policy during the message to Congress when he stressed, with an overall non specific commitment, “we believe in the unity and cooperation of Latin America and the world”, and in strengthening democracy as the only possibility to solving the problems of diverse societies.

Contrary to what happened in the three previous inaugurations of Argentine presidents, (Nestor Kirchner and two for Cristina Fernandez), there was no specific mention to the Falklands/Malvinas claim and sovereignty dispute.

But with the pledged spirit of overcoming the times of confrontation, “obviously we will stand by all our sovereign claims and our values without this impeding a normal relationship with all countries of the world”.

“To our brothers of the Americas and the world. We have a new vision of politics. We are the children of our times and we try to understand them without prejudice or rancor. We believe in the unity and cooperation of Latin America and the world, in the strengthening of democracy as the only possibility of solving the problems of diverse societies. It is necessary to overcome the times of confrontation”, said Macri looking to where the foreign leaders and visitors were following the ceremony.
