President Milei causes rupture of relations with Colombia

Buenos Aires, Mar 28 (Prensa Latina) Former Argentine Minister of Foreign Affairs, Santiago Cafiero, has regretted the rupture of two centuries of diplomatic ties between his country and Colombia due to the insults of President Javier Milei.

This never happened. With his offenses, Milei breaks 200 years of peaceful and friendly relations between Argentina and Colombia. His childish foreign policy, moreover, puts in crisis a prosperous and growing bilateral trade, Cafiero wrote on X social media.

Relations should not be ideological, but sustained in the real chances of development and our country has in Colombia a partner and a friendly people: In 2022 we reached a record trade turnover of two billion dollars, he added.

The Colombian government rejected defamatory statements uttered by the president of Argentina, Javier Milei, about the president Gustavo Petro, and ordered the expulsion of diplomats from the Argentine embassy in Bogota.

The Foreign Ministry described as “degrading the way in which Milei expressed himself against the president of Colombia” in an interview to the U.S. channel CNN, and warned that it is not the first time that Milei offends Petro.

This, he asserted, “affects the historical relations of brotherhood between Colombia and Argentina”.
