We congratulate President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner on her re-election. We also congratulate the millions of Argentines who exercised their right to vote in the elections on October 23. Argentina’s electoral process illustrates its commitment to democratic governance, a value that we share.

The United States and Argentina share a history of cooperation, and we will continue to strengthen our partnership.

We look forward to continuing to work with President Fernandez de Kirchner to advance common goals for the benefit of our two peoples and the Americas.
