Relations between the European Union and Argentina have strengthened and become considerably more concrete over the past few months, and there is great potential for even deeper cooperation, according to EU High Representative Federica Mogherini.
The President of the Argentine Republic Mr. Mauricio Macri today visited the EU Institutions in Brussels. President Macri was accompanied by the Governor of the Province of Cordoba Juan Schiaretti, the Governor of the Province of Misiones Hugo Passalacqua, Chief of Cabinet of Ministers Marcos Peña, Foreign Minister Susana Malcorra, Secretary for Strategic Affairs Fulvio Pompeo and Secretary for Coordination and International Cooperation Patricio Benegas.
Antananarivo, le 4 juillet 2016 – Une réunion de dialogue politique entre Madagascar et l’Union européenne a eu lieu aujourd'hui à la Résidence de l’Ambassadeur d'Allemagne. C'était la troisième réunion de dialogue politique en 2016, la deuxième au niveau de la Primature.
Thank you very much. We, first of all, have to apologise for the delay. But the meeting we had with President Macri and the entire Argentinian delegation together with a large delegation from the EU side has been longer than expected because it was an excellent, and I would say very concrete meeting, on concrete steps of cooperation. So it took us a bit more time than foreseen.
We had a very important summit with all the leaders of Western Balkans countries, hosted by President Hollande. It comes at a special time when it is very important for the European Union to reaffirm the willingness to proceed on the European integration of the Western Balkan countries, all of them.
