Foreign Minister announces Uruguay visit

Héctor Timerman.

Foreign Minister Héctor Timerman informed via Twitter today that he will fly to Montevideo next Monday to meet his Uruguayan counterpart, Luis Almagro. Likewise, the minister said that prior to flying he will officially announce the members of the Argentine scientific committee that will monitor the Uruguay River as well as the UPM (ex Botnia) paper mill after the agreement signed by President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner and Uruguay's José Mujica on July 28.

On his Twitter account, the minister wrote: "I'll be heading to Montevideo on Monday, before departure I'll announce the members of the scientific committee that will monitor Botnia."

Uruguayan media echoed the news and confirmed that Uruguayan Foreign Minister, Luis Almagro, will meet with his Argentine counterpart on what will represent the first diplomatic encounter after the neighbouring nations agreed to conduct a joint monitoring campaign of the Uruguay River's waters.

The two ministers will meet after Gualeguaychú Assembly representatives agreed in a voting process last night to continue their protests against the former Botnia paper mill, but clarified they would "avoid any further roadblocks and focus on other kinds of demonstrations, such as rally caravans."
