New Armenian Ambassador in Argentina Presents Credentials to President Mauricio Macri
The new Armenian Ambassador to Argentina, Ester Mkrtumyan, presented today her credentials to President Mauricio Macri at Casa Rosada. Later, Mkrtumyan deposited a wreath in the monument to General Jose de San Martin at a ceremony attended by Chancellor Susana Malcorra and representatives of the institutions of the Armenian community in Argentina.
"In general terms, the work of the Embassy must continue in the sense of strengthening the mutual cooperation developed in the past. That is to say, in the political sphere, everything we have achieved so far must continue in the same way," said Mkrtumyan to Prensa Armenia. "We want to carry out projects in the area of agriculture, because Argentina is a country that has great potential and would open a wide field for cooperation with Armenia."
The diplomat was named ambassador in February, after working as Consul at the Armenian Embassy in the country.
