Argentina and US reestablish defense links after a nine-year freeze
The reborn friendly spirit is a result of the new Argentine government under president Mauricio Macri, which was blessed by a several-day visit to Argentina of president Barack Obama, last March, particularly since the new administration was only three months in office.
The delegation to Washington was headed by Angel Tello who has Deputy minister status as head of Military Strategy and Affairs, and Walter Ceballos, Defense Logistics Services and Emergencies Coordination secretary, while their host was, Rebecca Chávez, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Western Hemisphere Affairs.
“Our objective is to retake the political coordination that was normal between Argentina and the United States, and more specifically we're planning participation in peace missions, retaking courses for military staff and exchange of officers and coordinating actions in the event of catastrophe and emergency situations” explained Tello.
