Amid debt dispute, President CFK calls for "unity" of people

President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner speaks during the inauguration of 700 houses in the city of Santiago del Estero.

President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner has said the country faces “difficult times” and warned holdout creditors want to see the country “kneel” in the ongoing case over Argentina’s sovereign debt.

“We face difficult times. They want to see us kneel. But I have faith in God and in our strength, in our convictions and in that we are right in what we stand for,” the President said during the inauguration of 700 houses built in Santiago del Estero.

Ms. Kirchner then called for the unity of Argentines to defend “the leaving behind a long history of financial indebtedness.”

“Some are trying to go back in time. I am convinced that what matters is the support of the majority of Argentines with good faith, not a political party but people,” she said.

“Our big failures as a society have always happened when our democratic forces were divided.”

During the ceremony, the President also supported the idea to move Argentina’s capital from Buenos Aires city to Santiago del Estero.

“Maybe we should discuss the moving of the country’s capital to Santiago del Estero. It’s an idea, we have to discuss it. We have the need to re-design the country, strategically speaking,” she concluded, as she recalled former President Ricardo Alfonsín's similar iniciative, and highlighted former President and husband Néstor Kirchner had supported that meassure.
