    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.

    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 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    BUENOS AIRES, October 25. /TASS/. Argentina’s Buenos Aires Province is interested in developing relations with Russia in various spheres, said Juan Manuel Pignocco, senator of the Legislative Assembly of Buenos Aires Province and head of the Commission for International Trade, Mercosur Issues and Regional Integration Policy in a conversation with Russian journalists.

    "We would like to develop relations in a wide range of areas: infrastructure, security, cyber security, energy industry, culture and sports. The interest is great," he said at the opening of the photo exhibition of the Russian Geographic Society dubbed "The Most Beautiful Planet" in the Senate building in Buenos Aires Province in the city of La Plata.

    "Our relations with the current government are not just good: Russia is a fraternal nation to us. We have common values and views on multilateralism," he noted.

    There is not enough "political will" to implement the entire potential of relations between Russia and Buenos Aires Province, Pignocco said. "It is just necessary to sit down and reach an agreement in order to further move forward more confidently and firmly," Pignocco added.

    As a senator, he forwarded the initiative to annually hold events devoted to relations between Buenos Aires Province and Russia, he said. He also suggested a memorial plaque for first female cosmonaut Valentina Tereshkova be mounted in one of the region’s municipalities.

    In addition, in February the lawmakers are going to hold an event devoted to the second anniversary of the meeting between Pope Francis and Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia in Cuba. "It was a historic event. It unites us not just in terms of religion, but also because Pope Francis is an Argentinian," Pignocco said.

    Russia likely wants good relations and trade with Brazil and Argentina and all the countries of central and south america... lets face it... there seems to be little chance with the two north american countries... but I don't see why Russia would rule out good relations with anyone that genuinely wants to trade and cooperate.

    It does not hurt Russia if Argentina or Brazil get rich and powerful... it might upset the UK or US... but why should Russia care about their feelings... what are they going to do... stop trading with Russia again?
