President suspends official trip to Spain after medical recommendation
President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner will fail to assist the Ibero-American Summit to be held in Cádiz city, after her personal doctors recommended to "avoid additional efforts" in her agenda.
The Presidential Medical Unit stated in a communiqué signed by Doctor Luis Buonomo that it recommended to avoid the trip to Spain as a "preventive measure," because it involves "almost a 40 hours flight for only 36 hours stay in Cádiz, besides the jet lag generated generated by the hour difference between Argentina and Spain."
The XXII Ibero-American Summit will be held between November 16 and 17 in the Southern City, where the Head of State was expected to meet with the King and other Spanish authorities after the crossfire between both governments over the YPF conflict.
