CFK in Bolivia to discuss gas imports
President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner landed on Tuesday in Cochabamba, Bolivia, where she took part in a gala dinner and is scheduled to meet tomorrow with her Bolivian counterpart Evo Morales. She is expected to discuss the import of gas from the neighbouring country to Argentina.
President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner urged people “not to get confused, because we all of us are in this together and we will staunchly defend not governments or people but the popular will of people who express themselves freely,” regarding the impeachment trial that ousted Paraguayan president Fernando Lugo in June, as she took part in a gala dinner during her visit to Bolivia.
The Head of State also added that regional governments “are waiting until democracy is restored Paraguay in free elections” in order to for the neighbouring country to become a full member of Mercosur bloc once again.
After her arrival, the head of state assured that “it is a great honour” to visit Cochabamba and stated that “it’s almost like being in Argentina.”
She was declared a guest of honour by the Cercado mayor, Edwin Castellanos, and was awarded the keys to the city.
“It is a great honour to be here, and it is great to meet with foreign minister David Choquehuanca and Evo (Morales),” she said in a brief statement.
