The State must be intelligent and be present in order to take care of Argentineans, President Mauricio Macri said as he inaugurated a new segment of the Roca train line in the BA province locality of Quilmes.

Head of the INDEC statistics bureau Jorge Todesca denied the government was seeking to “hide” inflation numbers saying authorities were “examining the work process” in order to have a new price index ready within eight months.

In the midst of ongoing and intense negotiations in the US courts between the administration of President Mauricio Macri and holdouts to reach an agreement, special master Daniel A. Pollack today said that "other parties with substantial holdings of defaulted Argentine bonds have expressed interest in settling."

Pope Francis launched a broadside against endemic corruption today on his first visit to Mexico as pontiff, calling on President Enrique Peña Nieto and his government to combat it.

With a hug and an exclamation of “Finally!” Pope Francis met with Patriarch Kirill in the first-ever meeting between a pontiff and the head of the Russian Orthodox Church, a historic development in the 1,000-year schism that has divided Christianity.

Patriarch Kirill’s historic meeting with Pope Francis will allow the head of the Russian Orthodox Church to assert Russia’s leading role in the Eastern Christian world. It may also allow Kirill, a skillful political player with close ties to President Vladimir Putin, to open a new avenue of communication for the Kremlin as it tries to escape Western isolation.

More than 5,000 pregnant Colombian women are infected with the mosquito-borne Zika virus, the country's national health institute said, as the disease continues its rapid spread across the Americas.
