President Alberto Fernández will meet in July with his American counterpart, Joe Biden, in Washington. Tentatively, the date of the meeting would be July 25, in what will be the first bilateral meeting between the two leaders, official sources reported.

The meeting was confirmed after the telephone dialogue that both had in the afternoon for 25 minutes. In the conversation, Biden formalized an invitation for Fernández to visit Washington to deepen the bilateral relationship on a broad agenda of strategic cooperation issues, among others: climate change, financial cooperation, renewable energies, technological innovation, human rights and agri-food production. .

However, Fernández replied: “Maybe we’ll see each other before at the Summit” of the Americas, which will take place on the 8th and 9th of this month and to which the Argentine president confirmed his presence yesterday afternoon through a letter that sent before this noon to the organizers.

Fernández and Biden had briefly spoken face to face on October 30, within the framework of the protocol greetings at the G20 Leaders Summit in Rome.
