Trump win would stall diplo­matic moves

Jamaica Gleaner - - UNITED STATES ELECTIONS 2016 - – AP

David Delacruz votes as his dog Bozco waits at City Hall in San Francisco yes­ter­day. AR­GEN­TINE FOR­EIGN Min­is­ter Su­sana Mal­corra says a win by Repub­li­can Don­ald Trump in the US elec­tion would stall re­cent moves to im­prove re­la­tions be­tween the coun­tries.

Mal­corra told Ar­gen­tine tele­vi­sion chan­nel Todo Noti­cias that the con­ser­va­tive gov­ern­ment of Pres­i­dent Mau­rico Macri had opened a new phase of co­op­er­a­tion and trade with Washington af­ter years of strained re­la­tions un­der for­mer Pres­i­dent Cristina Fer­nan­dez.

But she said Mon­day night that there might be a “big stop” in this process if Trump wins, and “de­pend­ing on the re­sults, there might be big changes” in US-Ar­gen­tine re­la­tions.

The Ar­gen­tine for­eign min­is­ter said the “more closed, iso­la­tion­ist and xeno­pho­bic” model rep­re­sented by the Repub­li­can can­di­date would have a ma­jor im­pact on the world and re­la­tions with Latin Amer­ica.
