FOREIGN MINISTER MALCORRA: So, Mr. Secretary, this is great to have you in Buenos Aires. And we really appreciate you for taking the time and visiting us. And we have a very, very important number of issues to discuss. So welcome to Buenos Aires, and the floor is yours.

SECRETARY KERRY: Well, Susana, thank you very much. I feel a very generous welcome here and we are really happy to be here. President Obama’s historic trip sort of set the stage; we’re building on that now. We’re very impressed by the reforms that your president is putting in place and your government are following. It’s exciting. We are delighted to see Argentina taking on responsibilities again – (ends in progress).
