Serious domestic problems await, and this morning President Alberto Fernández returned to the country after his four-day tour of Europe, a journey in which he visited Spain, Germany and France. In those countries, the President held important bilateral meetings, and left a series of important statements, mostly aimed at the complex international situation resulting from the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

The Aerolineas Argentinas plane that brought the President back landed around 1 this Saturday at Ezeiza Ministro Pistarini International Airport, coming from the Charles de Gaulle air terminal, on the outskirts of Paris.

In Spain, the president met with the head of the Spanish government, Pedro Sánchez, and with King Felipe VI; in Germany he had a meeting with Chancellor Olaf Scholz and in France he met President Emmanuel Macron, recently re-elected to his post. Fernández and Macron met on Friday in Paris at the need to “collectively respond” to the consequences of the Russian invasion in Ukraine and warned about the risk of an energy and food crisis in the most disadvantaged areas of the planet.

Coincidences

Both leaders made a joint statement in the entrance courtyard of the presidential Elysée Palace in Paris minutes before they share a bilateral meeting.

The coincidences between Fernández -in charge of the pro tempore Presidency of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States- and Macron -president of the European Union (EU) until June 1- were expressed in a joint statement to the press, before the meeting they held on Friday morning at the Elysée Palace, on the last day of the European tour.
