The Argentinean Head of State will be accompanied by a delegation made up of several members of his Cabinet and governors from various provinces.
This tour generates many expectations. The president will visit Moscow for the first time since he came into power, with a packed agenda that will include a meeting with his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, with whom he will review the bilateral agenda and delve into the issue of collaboration in the field of vaccines, investments, science and other topics of common interest.
Fernandez will then continue his tour on to China, where he will attend the opening of the Winter Olympics next Friday.
Once in China, Fernandez will hold a meeting with his counterpart Xi Jinping at the Great Hall of the People and will also make a series of visits to historical places.
According to Argentinean media outlets, one of the great expectations is whether the country will finally sign its adherence to the Silk Road initiative.
Fernandez’s presence will also coincide with the 50 years of diplomatic relations between the two countries, which began on February 19th, 1972.
On his return, the president will make a stopover in Barbados, where he will meet with the Prime Minister, Mia Mottley, with an agenda that will cover the climate crisis and the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC), whose pro tempore presidency Argentina assumed last January.
