The cabinet chief said the government of Juan Manuel De la Sota made no contact with federal authorities following the wave of looting that is hitting the province of Córdoba. Jorge Capitanich stated that the national administration will “monitor the situation” but stressed the conflict’s “responsibility lays strictly on De la Sota.”

At the Casa Rosada presidential palace, during his routine brief to the press and just before leaving to Paraguay, the head of ministers expressed the government’s “solidarity” with the victims of stores looting affecting Córdoba as police continues with a protest and strike over salary hikes leaving the province without security.

“According to the National Constitution, the Nation adopts a representative, republican and federal system and, in the context of provincial autonomies, public security is one of (provinces’) faculties, so this is a matter of wage that falls to the province (of Córdoba),” Capitanich said.

The minister added he received "no phone call" from Juan Manuel De la Sota thus rejecting the governor’s statements that he had demanded national assistance to cope with the provincial crisis.

Still, Capitanich affirmed the Cristina Fernández de Kirchner administration will “monitor” the situation and did not rule out the possibility of having national Security Secretary Sergio Berni in Córdoba soon.
