CFK urges the region to 'come together'
After meeting with Ecuador's President Rafael Correa today, President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner assured today that Latin American countries find themselves in a “better position than ever” and that the region cannot “miss this historic opportunity."
The Argentine head of state hosted a lunch for her Ecuadorian counterpart this afternoon at the Bicentenary museum.
There, Fernández de Kirchner remarked that the leading central countries of the world had “demonstrated their inefficiency in being able to resolve their own problems” and underlined that the region “should generate its own ways to assure that the ‘won generation’ of inclusion and improvements is not lost.”
Fernández de Kirchner met privately with her Ecuadorian counterpart Rafael Correa earlier today, who is visiting the country to receive the “Rodolfo Walsh” prize from La Plata University.
The meeting took place at the Government House.
Later this afternoon, Correa will be taken to the City of La Plata, where he is to attend a ceremony at which he will be awarded the Rodolfo Walsh prize, given to him by the Journalism and Communication Faculty, in the Latin American President for Popular Communication category.
In previous years, the prize has been awarded to Bolivian president Evo Morales, and Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez.
