    Russia to Supply Argentina with Nuclear Fuel

    Russia's nuclear fuel manufacturer will supply nuclear fuel to scientific and power-generating reactors in Argentina.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – TVEL, Russia's nuclear fuel manufacturer, said Wednesday it will supply nuclear fuel to scientific and power-generating reactors in Argentina.

    TVEL signed on Wednesday respective memorandums of understanding with Argentina's Comision Nacional De Energia Atomica and state-run INVAP corporation on the sidelines of the official visit of Argentinian President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner to Russia.

    Rosatom is currently one of five prequalified suppliers for Argentina's first light-water, enriched uranium pressurized water reactor.

    During his visit to Argentina in July 2014, Russian President Vladimir Putin expressed hope that Russian energy companies would be invited to the Latin American country to assist in renovation of its energy producing facilities and construction of new power stations.

    I am very skeptical about Argentine-Russian relations. Yes, they are in an excellent moment due to Argentina being abandoned by "first world countries". But there are two points that I, who have been living in Argentina for 10 years, would make:
    1- Nestor and Cristina Kirchner were a complete fiasco in the economical side. Up to last year, commodities were extremely high-prized, and instead of building huge reserves to be prepared for when the prizes lowered (like Russia did), billions were wasted in populist, non-productive programs, like in Venezuela. Now the country doesn't have either reserves, nor a competitive economy;
    2- Cristina's term ends this year, and it is still doubtful that her candidate will win the elections, as support for her party has been shrinking in the last years. All opposition candidates have been saying that the first thing they will do is to review all deals with China and Russia.
    I would love to see more Russian military equipment (apart from the 2 Mi-17) here, but I am not optimistic about it.

    You make a fair point. But biggest one is that good relations with USA amounted to little to argentina and they still faced economic issues. I think a good sellong point is to promis to their own people that their move in becoming president is to try and get into BRICS and then Asian market.

    Argentina has a lot of potential, and right now, military shouldnt be main aim. Build up military over time, but not when you dont have the money.

    I do hope to eventually see Argentina onboard with BRICS and other institutions rather than continuing the same failed policy of US, world bank and IMF. Which failed.

    This is the right thing to do, but it is something that no Argentine president or candidate has ever done - not even the current one. Kirchner turned to Russia and China out of desperation only, because her government has been abandoned by the most traditional partners the country has had. As always happen in Argentina, it is not a thorough analysis of the situation and long-term interests of the country. And unfortunately, all oppositions candidates are against coming closer to Russia and China, and favor negotiating and improving relations with Europe and the US. I fully agree that in the long term, closer relations with BRICS is the way to go, but many people here don't think so, usually only leftists. In Latin America, we usually have conservatives side with the US and EU, and leftists with Russia and China (like Cuba and Venezuela; while countries governed by the right or a very mild left, like Colombia and Chile, are very close to the US). Conservatives here still didn't realize that in Europe and North America, conservatives are wary of their own countries and now admire leaders like Putin and Orban.

    They are paid off. Cause previous relations with the west would give good indication to those in Argentina that it didnt work. Definition of insanity is repeating the same thing and expecting different results.

    They need to work towards an actual relations with the east. Not west. Gotta remind those in South America that the west is dying in terms of power.

    I read Página 12, dude. Which are your information sources in Argentina? MSM stuff such as Clarín & La Nación? According to my sources, favorite presidencial candidate for next election is Kirchnerist Daniel Scioli, in accordance to the most recent survey polls.

    Yes, for domestic politics news I read La Nacion and Clarin. Pagina 12 is unbearable, only lies and propaganda. I live here, and I know that there is very high inflation (the second highest in the world, just after Venezuela), that there are almost no reserves in the Central Bank, and that criminality, though smaller than most Latin American countries, is rising fast. These are only some of the problems Pagina 12 will never tell you. But then, regarding foreign issues, Clarin and La Nacion are impossible to read, as they will write about "Russia's invasion of Ukraine" and things like that.

    Russian-Argentinian relations reach highest in history — Russian deputy foreign minister

    Regarding the economy and investments, Moscow and Buenos Aires are on the threshold of implementing major projects, especially in the nuclear and electrical energy, Srgey Ryabkov notes

    BUENOS AIRES, October 22. /TASS/. Relations between Russia and Argentina have reached the highest degree of efficiency over their whole history, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov told TASS on Wednesday.

    "The relations are as good as new now," Ryabkov said. "Now we are getting to the best period from the point of view of efficiency and positive sentiments."

    Both countries have been developing contacts in all spheres, he said.

    "Our stances in a political dialogue are close and we share a rather meaty agenda," the deputy foreign minister said. "As for the economy and investments, we are on the threshold of implementing major projects, especially in the nuclear and electrical energy."

    Russia and Argentina are engaged in common cultural projects: tours of celebrated artists, exhibitions, reciprocal days of culture and numerous festivals.

    Along with this, Ryabkov said the two countries "exert efforts to reform the global finance system."

    "All these issues on bilateral agenda comprise an overwhelming strategic partnership," he said.

    Last April, Argentinian President Cristina de Kirchner paid a visit to Russia. The heads of state put their signatures under a joint statement establishing the overwhelming strategic partnership and also under other 20 agreements. In particular, the Russian state-owned nuclear corporation Rosatom and Argentinian Ministry of Federal Planning, Public Investment and Services signed a memorandum of understanding on cooperation in the construction of a nuclear power plant in the South American country.

    Diplomatic relations between the Russian Empire and Argentina were established on October 22, 1885, terminated in October 1917, and resumed between the USSR and Argentina in 1946. In December 1991, Argentina recognized the Russian Federation as successor of the USSR.

    Thus, in 2015 Russia and Argentina mark the 130th anniversary since diplomatic relations were established.On that day the Russian Empire’s foreign ministry appointed Alexander Ionin, a writer and traveller exploring South America, the ambassador to Argentina.

    In detriment of Russian-Brazilian ties, following President Rousseff's diplomatic blunders.

    This is MSM and minority opposition forces in Congress' wet dream. Nobody denies that the Rousseff gvmt is in trouble, but today an impeachment procedure is practically nonexistant. You need 2/3 of Congress for approval and this is simply impossible to achieve.

    Argentina Signs $1.9-Billion Deal With Russia’s VEB for Power Plant Construction

    Argentina’s Finance Ministry has signed an agreement with Russia’s Bank for Development (VEB) for the implementation of the Chihuido-1 hydroelectric power plant project.

    MEXICO CITY (Sputnik) – The deal, signed in Moscow on Friday, is worth almost $1.9 billion, the ministry said. The total cost of the project is about $2.2 billion, thus Argentina now has about 85 percent of the funds needed for its implementation.

    In April 2015, Russia’s Inter RAO Group won a tender for the construction of the Chihuido-1 hydroelectric power plant on the Neuquen River, in Argentina’s Neuquen province. The power station will have a capacity of 637 megawatts.

    The Inter RAO company has also expressed interest in building the Chihuido-2 plant with a 296 megawatt capacity.
