Blinken meets Argentina’s Cafiero

Argentina: On 18 January US State Department spokesperson Ned Price said that US Secretary of State Antony Blinken met that day with Argentina’s Foreign Minister Santiago Cafiero to discuss “our important bilateral relationship”. According to a US State Department press release, Blinken “congratulated Argentina on its election as President of the United Nations Human Rights Council and welcomed the opportunity to work with Argentina to support democracy and human rights in the Americas and beyond”. Also discussed was Argentina’s negotiation with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the US State Department press release cites Blinken as “encourag[ing] Argentina to put forward a strong economic policy framework that will return the country to growth”. The two men also expressed “serious concern” about the recent visit to Nicaragua of Iranian Vice President Mohsen Rezai, the subject of an Interpol Red Notice for aggravated murder and damages in connection with the 1994 bombing of the Amia Jewish community centre in central Buenos Aires, which killed 85 people. Blinken and Cafiero “discussed cooperation on efforts to bring to justice those suspected of complicity in the attack”.
