Argentine Government’s intention to be a NATO partner questioned

Buenos Aires, April 18 (Prensa Latina) The former Argentine secretary of the Malvinas, Antarctica and South Atlantic, Guillermo Carmona, today questioned the intention of the Government of Javier Milei to become a partner of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).

This day, the Minister of Defense Luis Petri met with Deputy Secretary General for Public Affairs and Security Policy of NATO, Javier Colomina, and gave him a letter with this request.

“I presented Argentina’s proposals to explore issues of mutual interest such as maritime security and reinforce strategic security dialogue. We are going to continue working to strengthen our relationship with NATO,” Petri stated in his profile on the social network X.

The above was criticized by Carmona, who warned that “being a global partner of NATO implies, among other inconveniences, becoming part of an organization whose main member is the power that militarily occupies the Malvinas Islands (United Kingdom).”

The conflicting interests are more than evident. They know it and they move forward. Premeditation in attacks against national sovereignty sooner or later brings consequences, he asserted.

For his part, the former executive secretary of the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America-People’s Trade Treaty, Sacha Llorenti, pointed out that Milei’s decision represents a threat to the region and its declaration as a zone of peace.
