Chile’s Piñera Says Ties with Argentina Have Never Been Better

SANTIAGO – Chilean President Sebastian Piñera said on Wednesday that relations between his nation and Argentina have never been better, and highlighted the fact that the two countries have the shared goal of achieving developed-nation status by 2030.

“We will be at the center of a transition into the future, transforming Argentina and Chile into developed nations, with no poverty and with equality of opportunity by the end of the next decade,” Piñera said.

Piñera welcomed the delegation of Argentine Cabinet officials and provincial governors who traveled to Santiago ahead of the 9th Chile-Argentina Binational Meeting.

The Chilean president said that the transition into development is not a “utopian dream,” but an achievable goal that can come to fruition if the two countries “do things right.”

Piñera also said that Chile and Argentina must strengthen a “global integration” that includes a broader collaboration on political and economic matters, as well as reinforce trade integration and physical connection.

He also reminded attendees that both countries are negotiating a free-trade accord, adding that the time has come to “push it with utmost vigor.”

Taking place alongside the Binational Meeting is what as known as the 2+2 process, consultations involving the respective foreign and defense ministers of Argentina and Chile.
