Cabinet chief Jorge Capitanich announced that US interim ambassador in Buenos Aires Kevin Sullivan has been summoned by Foreign Minister Héctor Timerman following his remarks about the country needing “to exit default as soon as possible” in an interview published yesterday.

“His comments are unfortunate, completely incorrect, inappropiate and an undue interference in the country’s sovereignty,” the chief of ministers said in his daily press briefing at the government house.

Sullivan had ratified that the US will not back the UN resolution for negotiations for an international legal framework for debt restructuring processes and had urged Argentina “to exit default as soon as possible in order to return to the path of sustainable economic growth.”

“(Sullivan’s remarks) are incorrect, unfortunate because Argentina pays and honours its commitments,” Capitanich stated. “Argentina has efectively deposited (bondholders’) funds on June 27. The impediment to receive payment is not Argentina’s problem but that of a judge,” he added in reference to US Judge Thomas Griesa’s ruling blocking the country from meeting its debt payments.
