US applauds Colombian gov't's draft decree on aerial spraying of glyphosates

Argentina: On 27 December 2019, Argentine news website Infobae reported that a delegation of US embassy officials had presented Argentina’s foreign minister, Felipe Solá, with a formal protest note in response to political activities undertaken by Bolivia’s former president, Evo Morales (2006-2019), who was granted refugee status by the Argentine government. Infobae reported that the delegation, which included political advisor Chris Andino, was standing in for US Ambassador Edward Prado who was on holiday at the time. According to Infobae, the diplomats said that the US was asking Argentina to be a “good neighbour” and to work to guarantee that Morales “doesn’t abuse” his status in Argentina. Also present at the meeting were Argentina’s secretary of strategic affairs, Gustavo Béliz, and the designated ambassador to Washington, Jorge Argüello. The meeting took place after Morales tweeted on 21 December 2019 that he would be meeting with leaders from his political party, Movimiento al Socialismo (MAS), on 29 December 2019, to elect a presidential candidate ahead of the upcoming general election in Bolivia, the date of which has yet to be announced.
