Russia follows the statements made by Javier Milei, who won the presidential election in Argentina, during his election campaign and will adopt a separate position for what he said after his inauguration, the spokesman said on Monday. of the president of Russia, Dmitri Peskov.
Dmitri Peskov said earlier Monday that his country “respects the choice of the people of Argentina.” And that Argentina is “a very important country in South America” with which Russia maintains “very good relations.”
But he immediately warned: “We pay attention to the series of statements made by Javier Milei during the election campaign, but we will be guided especially by what he said after his inauguration. “We are waiting for more issues affecting bilateral relations to clarify.”
Then, on behalf of Putin, Peskov once again built a bridge in a Telegram message that he published with an emoticon of two hands shaking in a sign of friendship and wrote: “We are in favor of continuing to develop our bilateral relationship with the Argentine Republic.”
From the first hour of his statements as a representative in 2021, Milei did not waste promises. He said he would not maintain relations with “communist governments,” which for him would include China and Brazil in the same bag.
In addition, he called Vladimir Putin an “autocrat” and clearly condemned the invasion of Ukraine.
Milei, leader of La Libertad Avanza (LLA), won the presidential elections in Argentina last Sunday. In his first speech after knowing the results of the election, the politician assured that starting today “the rebuilding” of the country and “the end of its decline” will begin.
Milei announced this Monday on Radio Miter that before taking office he will travel to the United States and Israel, a promise he made before.
