Argentine President Meets in Buenos Aires with President-Elect of Paraguay

BUENOS AIRES – Argentine President Mauricio Macri received on Tuesday at his office in the Casa Rosada in Buenos Aires the president-elect of Paraguay, Mario Abdo Benitez, who will take office next August 15, government officials said.

The meeting, of which just a single photo has been released, is the second stop on an international tour that Benitez began Monday in Brasilia, where he met with Brazilian President Michel Temer, and that will next take him to Moscow, where on Thursday he will meet with Vladimir Putin and will attend the kickoff of the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

About his meeting with Macri, the president-elect’s Cabinet announced last week that it would involve topics related to security, fighting transnational crime on their common border, holding the first meeting of ministers and governors on the common border, and energy matters.

Already last April 23, Macri called Benitez to congratulate him on his electoral victory the day before.

“I hope we can soon work together for the well-being of our people,” Macri then posted on his Twitter account.

Benitez, candidate of the ruling Colorado Party, won 46.44 percent of the vote, compared with 42.74 percent for his principal rival, the liberal Efrain Alegre.

The new Paraguayan president will be sworn-in next August 15 in Asuncion.
