Argentine President Alberto Fernandez will travel next week to the United States to meet with Joe Biden, the White House confirmed this Saturday through a press release.

The meeting will take place next Wednesday 29th after the conclusion of the first day of the second Democracy Summit in which the Argentinean will participate. Biden will receive Fernández for a bilateral meeting at the White House.

“The leaders will celebrate 200 years of bilateral relations between the United States and Argentina and reiterate the strength of the partnership,” the statement said.

They will also discuss how the United States and Argentina can continue to partner to address global challenges and make further progress in areas of mutual national interest, including critical minerals, climate change, space and technology.

They will also discuss economic cooperation and “their shared values of inclusion, democracy and protection of human rights.”

The Democracy Summit is an event organized by the U.S. President, for the second consecutive year, and was initiated “in the face of continuing and alarming challenges to democracy and universal human rights around the world,” as explained last year by Biden himself, who has invited several heads of state to participate in person or virtually in the event.
