Vladimir Putin received in the Kremlin President of Argentina Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, who is in Russia on a visit.
President of Russia Vladimir Putin: Madam President, friends, good afternoon.
It is a pleasure to meet with you in the Moscow Kremlin. Your visit falls on a special year, when we are celebrating 130 years of diplomatic relations between our two nations.
The world and our countries have changed significantly over the years, with only one thing remaining unchanged – the desire of our peoples and our countries to develop bilateral relations. Our political contacts have expanded lately and trade turnover has grown, though there are also some issues.
I am glad to have this opportunity to discuss all these positive trends, as well as the complications that you and I will need to resolve.
