'It's only in the worst moments when you see what a true leader is made of,' CFK warns
President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner met today with Buenos Aires Governor Daniel Scioli and Ezeiza’s Mayor Alejandro Granados to inaugurate a cultural centre named “My friend Néstor [Kirchner]” in that South Western BA district.
On the verge of tonight's 8N pot-bashing protests against her administration, the Head of State defied protesters and remembered that "It is only in the worst moments when you see what a true leader is made of, and not during happy booming times."
Likewise, the President remarked, once again, that dollars "are needed to pay for imports and meet international debt payments."
Fernández's agenda will continue in the afternoon –and by the time the nationwide pot-bashing protests will be taking the streets- when the Head of State will meet with Chilean ministers and mayors along with governors of all provinces that share borders with Chile. The meeting tends to set the way for future bi-national integration projects as well infrastructure works between the two nations.
Thus, the following governors will attend the meeting: Jorge Sapag (Neuquén), Martín Buzzi (Chubut), Alberto Weretlineck (Río Negro), José luis Gioja (San Juan), Claudio Poggi (San Luis), and Mendoza’s Economy minister Marcelo Costa who’ll be replacing governor Francisco Pérez –off to in China to lead a commercial mission; José Alperovich (Tucumán); Gerardo Zamora (Santiago del Estero); Luis Beder Herrera (La Rioja); Lucía Corpacci (Catamarca); Juan Manuel Urtubey (Salta); and Eduardo Fellner (Jujuy).
