The foreign ministry of China has issued a warning to Argentina against cutting ties with major countries such as China or Brazil. This comes after the election of Javier Milej as the new president of Argentina, who is known for his criticism of China and Brazil. In a press conference, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Mao Ning expressed her concerns about the impact that such a move could have on bilateral relations between the two countries.
Milej’s victory was met with celebrations in Argentina, but his policies towards China and Brazil have raised concerns among some Argentine officials. The newly elected president has criticized communism and said he would not deal with “communists”. He also advocated for stronger ties with the United States. Meanwhile, an economist who is expected to become foreign minister under Miley’s administration has stated that her country will not join the BRICS group, which consists of Brazil, Russia, India, China and the Republic of South Africa.
When asked about exports and imports with these countries, Mondino told RIA Novosti that Argentina would “stop communicating” with the governments of China and Brazil. However, Mao Ning responded by stating that the two sides have strong economic complementarity and enormous potential for cooperation. She added that China is willing to continue working together with Argentina to promote stability and long-term development in their bilateral relations.
