Argentina Returns to CELAC and Bets on Regional Unity and Resolution of Conflicts (+OAS Elections)

Argentina returned to the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (Celac) and bets on the integration of the nations of the continent, the resolution of conflicts in Bolivia and the restoration of democracy in that nation, says Prensa Latina.

The president of Argentina, Alberto Fernández, sent this message on Wednesday through the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Felipe Solá, who represented him in the installation of the pro tempore presidency of the regional body, by the government of Mexico.

During his speech at the event, Sola said that both Mexico and Argentina have ideas in common based on a “less unequal and more inclusive” Latin America. He stressed that it is necessary to work for the growth of trade and development between the two nations.

He also noted that both countries share similar positions regarding the election of the next secretary general of the Organization of American States (OAS).

Consequently, they coincide in the election of María Fernanda Espinosa, who was in charge of the UN General Assembly between 2017 and 2018 and was Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ecuador during the administration of Rafael Correa.
