RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL – French President Emmanuel Macron expressed Wednesday his wish that Argentina reaches an agreement “as soon as possible” with the IMF on the renegotiation of its debt and told his Argentine counterpart, Alberto Fernandez, that he has his country’s support.
“We want Argentina to reach an agreement with the IMF as soon as possible on a program that will restore the country’s macroeconomic stability. I know of your efforts, President. France is at your side,” he said before holding a bilateral working lunch at the Elysée Palace.
Fernandez’s arrival in Paris is part of a European tour started in Portugal and Spain, which will continue this Thursday in Italy and the Vatican, and which aims at gathering international support in the renegotiation of the debt that the country maintains with the IMF and the Paris Club.
