Timerman stresses good relations between Argentina and Uruguay
Foreign minister Héctor Timerman stressed today relations between Argentina and Uruguay “always were and are ideal”, and stated “problems are in the past, conflicts solved and past quarrels are buried”, the top official sustained.
“Today, we can call our dialogue ideal, we have advanced a lot when it comes to economical integration, social and political aspects,” the minister remarked today in an interview to Uruguayan paper La Republica.
To Timerman past disagreements are left behind and “are overcame for the sake of the people. We sorted out without resentments.”
“It is a good moment, problems are in the past. This relationship can expand, be improved, but we are surely in an excellent moment, no conflicts in sight,” he added.
The foreign minister complemented Jose Pepe Mujica’s government by saying “it gave us a whole new level of dialogue” and remarked the two nations’ governments have a “very similar vision.”
“It is madness to think Argentina without Uruguay and vice versa,” emphasized Timerman.
Addressing the global recession Timerman stressed that a regional approach should prevail. “There is a mutual understanding that the intelligent approach should be the one of common policies.”
Referring to a possible joint effort for the 2030 World Cup the official said that it was “a dream which will be fulfilled.” He also added the countries would show the world a great deal of “maturity.”
