President Alberto Fernández assured during his visit to Germany that “Argentina is a reservoir of what the world is demanding at this time.”

“We were able to talk about the good relationship that Germany and Argentina have and I am convinced that we have a lot to give. Argentina is a reservoir of what the world is demanding at this time,” said the Head of State in statements to the press after meeting with the German Chancellor, Olaf Scholz, as part of his second day of the tour of Europe.

“We are a large supplier of natural gas and we are developing a huge green hydrogen plant,” argued the Argentine president, according to a publication in Ámbito. “These are all possibilities that we have to bring energy to other parts of the world and I think that Germany can trust us,” he added.

“Argentina and Germany have a bond of many years that unite us socially and culturally,” said Alberto Fernández while assuring that they were able to “deal with all the issues that concern the world today.”

In that sense, both officials emphatically condemned the war between Russia and Ukraine. “We see with great concern the way in which the war is having an impact on our continent and on continents like Africa, where food security is being put at risk.” “We have to find mechanisms that will put an end to this war as soon as possible,” he added.

In other topics, the president stated that “Argentina is interested in being part of the Brics.” “You have to take into account that the country’s main trading partner is there, which is Brazil,” he clarified.

“The Foreign Minister highlighted the importance of the agreement we have signed with the IMF and also expressed his concern to me about the Paris Club, another of the problems we have inherited,” Fernández said.

Upon arrival at the Berlin International Airport, the president was received by the protocol director of the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Daniela Vogl, and by the Argentine ambassador to Germany, Pedro Villagra Delgado.
