Foreign Minister Felipe Solá met today with the outgoing ambassador of the United States, Edward Prado, whom he bade farewell and thanked for his cooperation and readiness to engage in dialogue to advance a variety of matters on the bilateral agenda. They reviewed last year’s progress in cooperation between the two countries, with a particular focus on the need to join efforts to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic, on matters of health, education and science and technology.
During the meeting, they discussed bilateral relations and the Foreign Minister stressed the need to enhance trade and investment flows. They also recalled the successful launch of the Argentine satellite SAOCOM 1B from the Cape Canaveral base in Florida, on August 30 last year, which marked a new milestone both in the history of Argentina’s space developments and in international cooperation in the peaceful uses of outer space.
Additionally, the Foreign Minister thanked Ambassador Prado once more for the commitment of the United States to support Argentina in its negotiations with the International Monetary Fund.
Prado has served as US Ambassador in Buenos Aires since May 8, 2018 and concludes his mission due to the change of administration in his country.
