    Russia, Argentina in Talks on Energy Investments – Lavrov

    MOSCOW, May 28 (RIA Novosti) – The outlook for Russian investment in Argentina’s energy sector was among the topics discussed at a Wednesday meeting of the Russian and Argentinian foreign ministers, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.

    “We aren’t just interested in ways to diversify our trade relations but actually want to focus on investment. We would welcome Argentinian investments in the Russian economy,” Lavrov said after talks with his Argentinian counterpart, Hector Timerman.

    Russia’s top foreign policy maker said Timerman confirmed Argentina’s interest in additional Russian funds. He said Russia was considering outlooks for a broader participation in its partner’s energy sector, including hydro and nuclear power plants.

    “We hope that competitive advantage of our companies interested in accessing these particular sectors of economy will be appreciated by our Argentinian colleagues,” Lavrov added.

    On Wednesday, Lavrov and Timerman met in Moscow to discuss a wide range of international issues, as well as Argentina's possible accession to the BRICS groups of countries and steps aimed at signing an accord on the peaceful use of nuclear energy.

    Putin calls for holding Russia-Argentina Bilateral Culture Year in 2015

    BUENOS AIRES, July 12 /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s President Vladimir Putin has called for holding the Russia-Argentina Bilateral Culture Year in 2015.
    Russian President Vladimir Putin and Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner
    Russia, Argentina sign several documents on strengthening cooperation

    “Next year we’ll mark the 130th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Russia and Argentina. This is a landmark event,” Putin said at expanded talks on Saturday.

    “I want to tell you this would be interesting for both countries,” he said.

    This would bring closer the peoples of both countries and prove the depth of relations in culture and international affairs, Putin said.

    Argentina’s President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner has lauded Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin’s initiative to hold the Bilateral Culture Year in 2015.

    “This has become a pleasant surprise for me. Russia’s history is long. The country was created earlier than Argentina that is why we’re happy to take part in this event,” de Kirchner said after expanded talks on Saturday.

    Since 2009 Russia and Argentina have worked to maintain strategic partnership. Argentina is one of Russia’s priority partners in Latin America. Cooperation develops in all fields. Trade turnover increased by 16% in 2013. “This is a good sign. But there are chances for increasing mutual trade and diversifying relations,” Putin said.

    Argentina till now was not a buyer of Russian weapons, but it seems, relations are getting better after Putin's visit in Argentina. After fiasco with Spanish Mirage-F1M fighters and latest bankrupt because of diss-agreement with some US debtors, maybe Argentinian army could start looking on Russian or Chinese armament for their armed forces. Maybe there is a chance, that Argentina could buy some air defense complexes or some fighters like Su-30MK2. For now they only buy a couple of Mi-17 helicopters.

    Perhaps Russia could lease them a few submarines too.

    I wonder how a new low cost modern fighter would sell in central and south america... a MiG-21 for the 21st century with less emphasis on speed with a bit more range and much better payload that was cheap to buy and operate but sophisticated enough to be useful.

    A few MiG-29M2s would be an interesting start... add a couple of Su-30Ms and perhaps fit them with AESA radars and RVV-BD missiles and have 2-3 Flankers operate with 4-6 Fulcrums...

    Even just some new armour and light vehicles...

    I think Su-30MK2 like Venezuela have could be the best option for Argentine as Argentina is quite big country and Su-30 have longer range and more powerful radar than Mig-29M2. Argentina should buy 24 of them to form 2 fighter squadrons. The other plane, they could buy or even produce in their FMA factory is radar equipped Yak-130, which could replace their aging A-4AR planes as Yak-130 have very similar capabilities, but have 2 engines and more hard points for weapons and full tanks. They could as well be equipped with IFR.

    Argentina looking to Russian poultry import quotas

    MOSCOW, August 19. /ITAR-TASS/. Argentina is interested in receiving Russia’s import quotas for poultry, granted to the European Union before Moscow's ban on western food imports, Russia’s veterinary inspection service Rosselkhoznadzor said on Tuesday after talks with Argentinian ministers.

    The country has created a special commission to examine the possibilities of expanding trade turnover with Russia, said First Deputy Foreign Minister Carlos Bianco ahead of a session of the Russian-Argentinian intergovernmental commission for trade, economic, scientific and technical cooperation in Moscow in September.

    Putin hopes to strengthen Russia’s business contacts with Argentina
    Argentina is ready to organize supplies of a wide range of animal and plant products to Russia, including dairy products, cheeses, chocolate and confectionery products, milk powder, wine, macaroni products, fish and seafood, and fruit - mainly citrus fruits, apples and pears, said Argentina's Industry Minister Debora Giorgi. The country also considers supplying breeding animals and genetic material, the minister added.

    The Russian agency will examine proposals and guarantees of the Argentinian side within the shortest possible time to expand the list of enterprises interested in supplying animal products to the Russian market, said Rosselkhoznadzor head Sergey Dankvert.

    The ban announced on August 7 bars imports of meat, fish, dairy, fruit and vegetables from the United States, the 28-nation European Union, Canada, Australia and Norway for 12 months in retaliation for sanctions imposed by those nations on Russia over events in Ukraine.

    Combined with other import bans imposed earlier this year, the new trade measures cover western imports worth $9.1 billion in 2013, according to Russian customs data.

    Argentina is going to become one of the best russian ally in South America. After the Argentinian financial problem Putin had a very advantageous meeting with president Kirchne. Infact she is quite disappointed about the American policy in Latin America and  Argentina will be closest to russia in the near future. We might expect a military order by the Argentine Air Force, especially  regarding  the hardwere that require a lot of maintenance and spare parts, such as fighter jets.

    I tried to post an external link but I'm a new member and I can't, but there are hundreds of news regarding this topic

    Hope Argentinian air force will be equipped with MIG-29M2/MIG-35.

    The UK reaction to Argentine MiG-35s would be interesting... a long range AESA radar and RVV-BD AAMs with a range of 280km would be very destabilising in the region... would be like selling machine guns to the natives...

    Of course British reaction will not be positive. But you know couse of the UK Argentina has problem in buying any type of supersonic jet ( A frind of mine is an ex-argentinian pilot of Mirage, he is quite a fascist but he told me lot of interesting stories about the FAA), so they have another motivation to buy Russian made fighter. Russia is a stable and friendly country, i really can't find a better seller for the FAA
    Yes MIG-35 is a very interesting aircraft, I think they will enjoy it. Even the combat radius is not too bad for the big country.

    If you listen to the US State Department any US sale of weapons to a US ally promotes peace and stability in that region. Any one else supplies anyone with weapons and it is a worrying development that will upset peace and stability in the region...

    Yes, when USA offers uranium shells and phosphorus bombsto to Israel it's all right. When Russia aid Syria to fight
    fundamentalists with conventional weapons it's, as you say "a worrying development that will upset peace and stability in the region"
    But you know one good thing about this year is that Russia now doesn't cares of USA ( Russia will start a military cooperation with Iran, for example)

    The US is trying to steal Argentina's huge natural resources (shale oil and natural gas in Vaca Muerta) with the help of the local 1% percenters.

    There's no room for traitors. The ones that say that Argentina should pay the bondholders should be tried for treason.

    They want to sell the country out to the IMF and the bankers.

    They are really trying to get at both South America (especially Venezuela) and Africa. Both just happen to have large mineral and oil resources...

    Those countries should seek Russian alliance ASAP as a deterrent.

    http://en.mercopress.com/2014/09/20/argentina-s-defense-budget-with-many-pledges-but-not-much-beef

    In last year's presentation of the 2014 defense budget, the bill said that the Air Force was planning to incorporate Mirage I, which had belonged to the Spanish Air Force, to replace the Mirage III. However later and apparently because of costs the option turned to Israel Kfir fighter bombers, similar to the Mirages but so far it has been but a wish.

    It seems Argentina's wish to buy Kfir planes from Israel will stay only wish as there is not enough money for it. Maybe this is a chance for Russia, to propose Argentina buying Russian planes in Argentina's currency and with compensation with increased export of food and goods from Argentina to Russia.

    Argentina Buying Russian All-weather Attack Aircraft Su-24. President Putin’s visit to Argentina in July laid the groundwork for exchanging Russian military hardware for wheat, beef and other goods Moscow needs due to EU food embargoes.

    The deal involves a lease/lend of 12 Sukhoi Su-24 supersonic, all-weather attack aircraft. They are ageing but Nato still regards what it codenames “Fencers” as “super-fighters”, with their 2,000-mile range and laser-guided missiles. The aircraft, which Moscow will swap for beef and wheat, would be able to mount air patrols over Port Stanley.

    I think Russia will lease those Su-24 to Argentina for free for few years and in the mean time Argentina could buy new Su-30 or MiG-29M/35 fighters.

    And in a future Su-24 might become Su-34 with 3 air launched Brahmos per plane Very Happy

    I doubt. Argentina more need a fighter, than a bomber. I think they will likely buy MiG-29M or Su-30 fighers, maybe even MiG-29K/KUB as they are better protected for sea operations as carrier based fighter.

    Meanwhile, Argentina's ally Brazil is just falling short of being labelled a 'banana republic' with its Gripen, Harpoons, P-3 Orions and stuff. Instead of incorporating Su-35s in its recent fighter tender, which would enable Brazil a South Atlantic predominance over UKs Eurofighters, it settled on one-engined (US-made) Gripen NG to be delivered from 2019 on. All this slant over US hardware is a consequence of the Brazilian militaries' fear of threats towards EMBRAER's aerospace industry (which is also American but located in Brazil, btw) as retaliation if it opted for advanced Russian Su-35s and KH-31 anti-ship missiles.

    Argentina and UK Falklands spat spiced up by Russian jets

    The Falkland Islands - a UK overseas territory Argentina lays claim to - have been allegedly reviewing their defenses after news Russia may offer Argentina fighter jets. Moscow could swap them for beef and wheat, UK's Daily Express says in its report.

    The deal reportedly involves a lease/lend of twelve Sukhoi Su-24 all-weather attack aircraft, which NATO calls "Fencer A". The jets will be able to do air patrols over the Falklands' capital, Port Stanley. According to the tabloid, Ministry of Defense officials fear Buenos Aires will take delivery of the planes well before the 2020 deployment of the Navy’s 65,000-tonne aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth and its F-35B fighters, leaving a “real window of vulnerability.”

    Up to 1,500 troops, backed by a naval warship that visits throughout the year, are permanently based on the Falklands, along with four RAF Typhoon jets, plus anti-aircraft and artillery batteries.

    The Falklands, called 'Las Malvinas' by the Argentinians, have belonged to Britain since the 1830s. Argentina insists the islands are theirs by virtue of their proximity to the South American mainland. In 1982 Buenos Aires lost a brief war with Britain over the islands. Under the Constitution, the UK is responsible for the islands' foreign affairs, retaining the power "to protect UK interests and to ensure the overall good governance of the territory." Nonetheless, the islands have their own internal government. Last March, Falkland islanders held a referendum, voting by 1,513 to three to remain a British overseas territory. Russia supports Argentina's bid for direct bilateral talks with Britain on sovereignty of the islands.

    Russia has been developing friendly ties with Argentina since 2010, when it signed a "historic" contract with Buenos Aires and delivered two Mi17 assault helicopters to serve in the country's national Air Force. The sale was the first time the Argentinean military had bought Russian military hardware.

    President Vladimir Putin’s visit to Argentina in July 2014 also helped boost relations between the countries, possibly paving the way for exchanging Russian military hardware for food and goods. Russia banned food imports from the US, along with goods from the EU, Norway, Australia and Canada, after Putin ordered retaliation for sanctions against Russia over the Ukraine crisis.

    Buenos Aires needs to replace its depleted fighter fleet. In October, Defense Minister Agustin Rossi announced the purchase of 24 Saab Gripen fighters, which were to have been provided by Brazil. It would have been the first major purchase of new military aircraft by Buenos Aires since the Falklands War three decades ago. However, the deal was called off because some of the jet’s parts were made in the UK.

    The seabed around Falklands is believed to contain copious oil reserves. While oil companies have conducted large-scale exploration, exploitation of the reserves hasn’t yet been launched. Tensions between the UK and Argentina escalated in 2010 when a British company began exploring for oil near the Falklands' waters. Argentina introduced new rules in response, requiring all ships travelling to the Falklands through its waters to have a permit.

    Argentina will purchase more Mi-171 helicopters

    Ministry of Defense of Argentina is considering the possibility of purchasing more Russian-produced multi-role Mi-171E helicopters, Lenta.ru reports with reference to Infodefensa and the Minister of Defense of Argentina Agustin Rossi.

    The number of helicopters to be purchased and the date of signing the contract are unknown. At present Buenos-Aires operates two Mi-171E vehicles purchased in 2010 (the value of this contract was €22 million).

    In May 2012 Russia and Argentina signed a memorandum of understanding, which included deliveries of three more Mi-171E and three Ka-226T helicopters to Buenos-Aires. Argentina hoped to get an export credit from Russia in order to purchase the vehicles. Buenos-Aires postponed the purchase of these helicopters due to defense budget constraints.

    The first two Mi-171Es delivered to Argentina in 2011 were painted in white and orange and fitted with rescue hoisting devices. Argentina chose Russian helicopters, because they may be operated under severe climatic conditions (range of temperatures from -50 to +58 Celsius). Mi-171E helicopters are taking part in search-and-rescue operations and deliver goods to Argentina’s stations in Antarctic Region.

    Russia, Argentina Experiencing Best Relations in History – Ambassador

    Argentine Ambassador to Russia Pablo Anselmo Tettamanti said that the relations between Argentina and Russia are in their best moments in past decades.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russia and Argentina are currently experiencing the best communication in a 130-year-long history of bilateral relations, Argentine Ambassador to Russia Pablo Anselmo Tettamanti told Sputnik.

    “The relations between Argentina and Russia are in their best moments in past decades, I think this [moment] is the best, but it is also a great challenge,” the diplomat said, adding that the two countries now have to take advantage of the situation and transform their good will into specific action.

    Tettamanti noted that the two countries have maintained good contacts since the establishment of relations in October 1885. He said that Russia and Argentina consistently demonstrate convergence on issues even when ideological positions of the governments differ.

    After the West started imposing sanctions on Russia over Moscow’s alleged role in the internal Ukrainian conflict, Argentina significantly increased food imports to Russia.

    Currently the two countries are discussing the possibility of Russia investing in the Argentine energy sector and Argentina purchasing Russian Mi-171E helicopters.

    Argentina wants Russian companies to join the project to build Unit 5 of the Atucha NPP about 100 kilometers (62 miles) from Buenos Aires.

    "Argentina is interested in the participation of Russian companies in the construction of the fifth reactor of the Atucha NPP, as well as in other projects," the ambassador said in a brief interview in the run-up to the Argentine president's visit to Russia.

    The ambassador said that Vladimir Putin and Cristina Kirchner "are expected to reach understanding in the talks that have lasted for quite a while" when they meet in Moscow in late April.

    In July 2014, Russia and Argentina signed a package of agreements, including one on energy cooperation. During his visit to Argentina that month, President Putin expressed hope that Russian energy companies would be invited to Argentina to help revamp its energy producing facilities and build new power stations.

    Last July, Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak said that Russia's Rosatom nuclear energy corporation was ready to work with Argentina on the construction of a new nuclear power unit at the Atucha plant as both contractor and builder.

    Atucha is a nuclear power plant in the Argentinian town of Lima. Argentina announced earlier plans to build a fourth nuclear power unit to fit in a Canada-made reactor, while a fifth unit would reportedly be built around a Russia-constructed reactor.

    Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner is expected to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow on April 23. According to the Kremlin press service, the two leaders will discuss the implementation of the agreements reached during Putin's visit to Buenos Aires last summer. They will also exchange opinions on further development of bilateral cooperation in trade and investments.

    Argentine Energy Company CEO to Sign Deal with Russia’s Gazprom Wednesday

    Argentinian energy company YPF head Miguel Galuccio is expected to sign a contract on joint exploitation of shale oil and gas fields in the Latin American country with a Gazprom subsidiary.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Argentinian energy company YPF head Miguel Galuccio will visit Moscow Wednesday to sign a contract on joint exploitation of shale oil and gas fields in the Latin American country with a Gazprom subsidiary, La Nacion newspaper reported Tuesday.

    According to the Argentine daily, YPF and Gazprom International are expected to conclude a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) during Galuccio’s visit to Moscow.

    Russian energy company Gazprom and French petrochemical giant Total may explore new areas of Bolivia for gas, Gazprom said in a statement Thursday.

    The energy executive's visit will precede talks between Argentinian President Cristina Kirchner and Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow, scheduled for Thursday. It is expected that the sides will focus on promoting energy cooperation.

    A large oil and gas deposit in western Argentina's Vaca Muerta was discovered in 2011. The field is believed to possess one of the world's largest reserves of shale-based hydrocarbons.

    Russia, Argentina to Discuss Increase in Bilateral Food Supplies

    One of the top issues of Argentinian President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner's official visit to Moscow will be the increase in bilateral food trade, according to the statement of Rosselkhoznadzor.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russia and Argentina will discuss on April 23 the increase in bilateral food trade as part of the agenda of Argentinian President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner's visit to Moscow, Russia's agriculture watchdog, Rosselkhoznadzor, said Tuesday.

    "Rosselkhoznadzor chief Sergei Dankvert will meet with Argentinian officials on Thursday in the framework of the Russia-Argentina Intergovernmental Commission on Trade and Science Cooperation to discuss the prospects of increasing the volume of bilateral food trade," Alexei Alekseenko, an aide to the head of the Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance told RIA Novosti.

    Alekseenko said that the volume of Russia-Argentina food trade in 2014 totaled $1.3 billion.

    In light of souring relations with the West in 2014 over the crisis in Ukraine, Moscow has significantly increased its trade and economic cooperation with the countries of Latin America, the BRICS and the Asia-Pacific region.

    Earlier in 2014, Dankvert said that Russia expected to increase bilateral trade with Argentina to $3 billion in 2015, a significant increase from the 2013 $1.9 billion trade turnover.

    During the April 23 meeting in Moscow, Russian President Vladimir Putin and Argentina President Cristina Kirchner are expected to discuss bilateral trade, the future development of economic ties, as well as an expansion of investment cooperation.
