Brazil’s former president and current leader of the Workers’ Party, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, arrived in Buenos Aires, Argentina on Monday (01.23.2023). He is on a diplomatic mission to refound the bilateral ties between the two countries.
Alongside Argentinian President Alberto Fernandez at the Casa Rosada, Lula expressed the hope for the two nations to come together to “grow and develop” together. He also added that Brazil was open to making good agreements with Argentina, radiating a message of friendship between the two nations.
Lula’s visit to Argentina marks his first state visit of the new term and his presence at the summit of presidents of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (Celac), to which Brazil returns after an absence.
As of 2022, Argentina and Brazil had a bilateral exchange of close to 29,000 million dollars, making Brazil the main trading partner of the South American nation.
