The chief adviser on National Security to the President of the United States, Joe Biden, will visit Olivos with Juan Gonzalez, director for the Western Hemisphere of the White House, who already visited Argentina last April, when he met with Fernández.
In addition, they make up the entourage Ricardo Zuniga, special envoy for the Northern Triangle (Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras) and MaryKay Carlson, in charge of business at the US embassy in Buenos Aires. Along with Alberto Fernández will be Felipe Solá, Gustavo Béliz Y Jorge Argüello.
During the meeting, it is expected that the global vaccination campaign will be discussed as a prop for the recovery of economies. It should be remembered that the US has already donated to the world about 100 million doses of different vaccines against the coronavirus and it is possible that shortly, in addition, there will be a new announcement of the shipment of new doses from Washington to Argentina. Perhaps it is earlier than thought so far.
In addition, the situation in Cuba, Nicaragua and Venezuela will be discussed, also bearing in mind that Zuniga was a special collaborator of Barack Obama in the process of “thaw” with the Cuban government. On the other hand, it is also expected that the role of China at a global level will be discussed, a point that also occupied a central place during Sullivan’s meeting with Bolsonaro.
In Buenos Aires, the Security Advisor plans to hold meetings with other national officials as well.
