Gov't blasts US 'lessons' on drugs

In his daily press brief, Cabinet Chief Jorge Capitanich endorsed Security Secretary Sergio Berni’s harsh remarks against US drug policy. “Some countries intent to teach lessons [on drug policy]” when they should be taking a closer look at what happens in their own countries, Capitanich said.

In response to a report from US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) that warned about the “dramatic” increase of drug consumption in Argentina, yesterday Berni rejected the document for being “arbitrary” and said that the US “imports drugs and exports death”.

“Berni’s statements were clear, eloquent and convincing,” Capitanich said.

During his briefing at Casa Rosada Presidential Palace Capitanich also referred to local economic issues. Asked about recent rumours about the possibility of a return of double compensation laws to discourage companies from firing workers, he said the government was not working on the subject at the moment.

He also praised the government’s credit policy, which he said amounts to about 200 billion pesos to “stimulate financing conditions to increase investment”.
