Argentine President Mauricio Macri said today (Jan. 16) that the visit of his entourage to Brazil marks the beginning of a leap forward for Mercosur—a bloc that also encompasses Paraguay, and Uruguray (Venezuela has been temporarily suspended).
“It’s a leap forward in the confidence and the ties that were already good, so they can be even better for Brazil and Argentina,” he said.
While making a toast at a lunch hosted by the Brazilian government at its Foreign Ministry, Macri mentioned that multilateral relations within Mercosur started “erroneously,” which led to a delay in the region. “We were protecting growth, but that didn’t work. What happened was the opposite: our countries lagged behind.”
