Chile's Bachelet to visit Argentina in first presidential tour

Chile’s President Michelle Bachelet will travel to Argentina in April for what will be her first official visit since being re-elected for office, the nation's Foreign Minister Heraldo Muñoz confirmed today.

Muñoz was accompanied by Argentine Héctor Timerman as he made the announcement.

The Chilean official explained that meetings would focus on “strengthening the integration process between our two countries”, while adding that high-ranking summits would continue, even before Bachelet’s visit.

Timerman, meanwhile, drew attention to the close links between the two nation, and the commitment to strengthening that relationship.

“The relationship with Chile is not just a warm one, but also an historical one, and it manifests a shared future. That is why we have agreed to engage in another round of meetings between ministers, in order to deepen this relationship".

He moved on to highlight both countries' positions at the United Nations Security Council, where Argentina and Chile hold a non-permanent seat, in representation of South American nations.

“We are the voice of South America and the Caribbean in that international organisation,” Timerman affirmed.

Yesterday, Bachelet was re-elected and took office for a second term, the first running from 2005 to 2010. President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner was present at Bachelet’s inauguration in the Pacific city of Valparaíso.
