According to the Ministry of Communication and Press, the presidents talked for 45 minutes by telephone about the evolution of bilateral trade and the role of the regional integration mechanism to which both nations recently returned. In addition, they advocated deepening the economic ties and fraternal ties between the two countries.
In particular, they reviewed collaboration agreements signed on January 23 at the Casa Rosada in areas such as defense, health and science, which are part of the relaunch of a strategic alliance between their respective States.
Earlier this month, Fernández and Lula announced the return of their countries to Unasur, after being removed from that platform in 2019 by former presidents Mauricio Macri (2015-2019) and Jair Bolsonaro (2019-2022).
In addition, they advocated for the renewal and strengthening of this mechanism.
