Mujica: ‘Bilateral relation is being restored’

Uruguay''s President José Mujica next to President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner.

Uruguay’s head of state, José 'Pepe' Mujica assured the bilateral relation “is being restored”, as he anticipated that efforts will continue in order to overpass the differences with Argentina, after a meeting he held with President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner in Cuba.

“The bilateral relation is being restored. Countries can’t move, so we have to keep on working,” assured Mujica in a press conference at the Celac summit celebrated in Havana.

In addition, the Uruguayan leader stated that “I don’t know if we are going to have another meeting,” in allusion to Fernández de Kirchner.

Mujica described the reunion with his counterpart as “positive,” and emphasized that it “helped to reduce tensions over the regional situation.”

Continuing Argentine protests over the ex-Botnia plant situated on the Uruguay River, as well as trade disagreements, have caused relations between the traditionally close allies to plummet in recent years.
