CFK to meet Chinese Foreign Minister
Among other activities in CFK’s agenda for the day is a government rally to take place at the Buenos Aires province locality of Santos Lugares where the President will be inaugurating new train cars of the San Martín line service that connects the City of Buenos Aires with northern provincial areas.
After the train activity that is expected to start at noon, Cristina Fernández will be meeting Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi and other authorities from the Asian giant to address bilateral trade and investment issues.
The gathering – scheduled for 7 pm – will take place at the Olivos presidential residency and comes ahead of a visit by China’s President Xi Jinping who will be arriving in the South American country in July. Ms. Fernández will be joined by Foreign Minister Héctor Timerman.
Chinese diplomat Wang Yi is on an official Latin American tour that has already taken him to Cuba and Venezuela. Following the Buenos Aires stop, he will fly to Brazil where BRICS countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) will be holding a summit also in July.
