CFK's first interview in 4 years: vulture funds, country history and Perón
The President chose the journalist Hernán Brienza for the interview that took place in the presidential residence in Olivos and was transmitted via TV Pública and Radio Nacional.
President Fernández explained: “I need US dollars to pay the debt that I haven’t generated”, giving a historic overview of the 1970s when “the national heritage was sold out” leading to the 2001 crisis.
At the same time Fernández reassured: “Argentina is growing 5.1 percent, while the world is falling apart”.
The President recalled her youth, highlighting the Ezeiza massacre and admitted her full acceptance of Perón’s leadership reflecting on the current "political power" that needs legitimacy.
The second part of the interview with Hernán Brienza will be transmitted next Saturday, 21 September.
