'Our alliance with Brazil is indestructible,' Timerman says
Only hours away from Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff's first official visit to the country, Foreign Minister Héctor Timerman stated that the alliance between Argentina and Brazil “is indestructible” and assured that the good relationship between both countries “is what brings stability to the region.”
“If that relationship prevails, then the whole region will keep going through a process of growth and democratic stability that will be hard to interrupt,” he considered.
The minister recalled that it was during the 19th century that many were trying to maintain certain rivalry between both countries “in order to avoid unity.”
“And now we’re headed towards a union of both countries,” he said.
Mr. Timerman closed by stating that in the both government’s best interest to “travel the world selling Argentine and Brazilian products.”
“We’re building nuclear reactors and we’re coming up with new education reforms so both countries can complement better,” he said.
