President Macri Says YES to US Military Base in Argentina

US Military Base in Argentina might happen sooner than expected? Argentina’s President Mauricio Macri has reportedly yielded to US requests and given a positive signal for the creation of various US military bases in Argentina. Various news portal said Argentina’s Security Minister Patricia Bullrich was supposedly one of the key patrons for the US project.

In November 2015, centre-right Mauricio Macri won the presidential election in Argentina. Macri’s success put an end to a 12-year period of governance by left-wing Nestor Kirchner from 2003-2007 and by his wife Cristina Kirchner from 2007-2015.

Macri has frequently stated that the policy of his forerunners had resulted in Argentina’s isolation from the West and pledged to develop Buenos Aires’ relations with the US and EU.

Last year, the US Senate proposed a judgment sustaining Washington’s pledge to continue military and economic cooperation with Argentina. The resolution urges the US State Department to build a powerful strategy to expand cooperation with the government of Argentina on issues of bilateral, regional as well as international concern.
