In an interview with Juan Martín Porto, of the Telam Agency, Cafiero, who took office in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs last year, after serving as Chief of Staff, stated that “Argentina pursues a realistic, friendly and dignified foreign policy”, which “operates on the conjuncture, defends its national interests and generates the necessary relations and cooperation.”
Facing the fortieth anniversary of the Malvinas War, which will be commemorated on April 2, Cafiero anticipates: “From the Ministry of Foreign Affairs we will emphasize our request to the UK to comply with UN Resolution 2065, which requires it to sit down and seek a peaceful solution to sovereignty over the Malvinas Islands.”.
Cafiero also defines Mercosur as the country’s “integration platform” with the region and the world; and highlighting Human Rights organizations and policies developed since the Néstor Kirchner administration, as being responsible for the fact that Argentina has been elected for the first time in history to chair the Human Rights Council of the United Nations Organization (UN).
“This is an acknowledgment of our history, our present and how we propose the defense of human rights as a pillar of our democracy for our future”, he concluded.
