Cristina: We will adopt measures to help Argentina
President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner today asserted that she would only take decisions that benefitted the overall health and stability of the Argentine state, as she called on the country to defend the achievements of the past 10 years.
"We will adopt the most suitable measures, not for this government but rather for Argentina," the head of state fired during her speech, as she claimed that outside interests wanted to see the country fail.
"Every time that Argentina has become viable, that is when the missiles and permanent bombardments begin," CFK said, adding that despite the ongoing dispute against holdout investors "we are going to keep working as always."
"That is why we called on every Argentine to defend, not a government, but all those things so that we never go back to what we were, dependent, hopeless, indebted so that the country could not rise up."
Ms. Kirchner headed an official ceremony in the Women’s Room at Government House to inaugurate infrastructure works for the Northern Pipeline. With an investment of 15,8 million pesos it will boost gas supply to Formosa, Chaco, Misiones and Corrientes provinces, Cabinet Chief Jorge Capitanich explained earlier today.
Cristina also marked the 38th anniversary of the death of monsignor Enrique Angelelli at the hands of the military dictatorship, affirming that "the best tribute we can pay to him is to keep working for the wellbeing of all Argentines."
"We want every Argentine to have rights," the president stated, "and we are doing this in a context where some say the world is falling apart; but we are going to keep working as we have always done, and if at times we get it wrong it is because we worked hard, not due to doing nothing."
