The Argentine vice president points out in a letter that the negotiations with the international organization are “a historic moment of extreme gravity.”
The vice president of Argentina, Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, has come up against criticism for her “be quiet“in relation to the negotiations with the International Monetary Fund for the restructuring of the huge debt contracted under the government of former President Mauricio Macri.
In an extensive letter, the ex-president attributed these criticisms to the “hegemonic media”, the Wall Street brokers, the IMF and the opposition, which she accused of disengaging from the debt negotiation, despite having won the parliamentary elections of November 14.
“Really what the same and the same that brought the IMF back to Argentina, restarting the tragic cycle of indebtedness that Néstor Kirchner had closed in 2005, today they are not in charge of anything? “, asks Cristina Fernández.

After verifying that as of next December 10, for the first time since 1983, “Peronism will not have a quorum own in the Chamber of Senators of the Nation “, the vice president urged the winners to exercise the responsibility of representation.
“Or what do they want the banks for? To collect the allowance? Or perhaps to travel abroad with free tickets and per diem in dollars?”
Remembering that Argentina “has the unprecedented weight of a debt also unpublished with the IMF “, the policy emphasizes that” it is a historical moment of extreme gravity “, since” the definition that is adopted and approved, can become the most authentic and true stocks of which there is memory for the development and growth with social inclusion “.
