Zdero traveled to Buenos Aires this Monday to participate in a meeting at the Federal Investment Council where at the end he made statements to the press. Earlier, he had been received by the Minister of the Interior, Guillermo Francos, at Casa Rosada.

Zdero indicated in turn that the country’s situation “is not for setbacks, nor for looking askance at us” and, instead, he said that we must “stand back to back.”

What they did not solve in 16 years It will not be possible to solve it in three months, let’s be patient“We all found a way to see how to improve Argentina,” he added.

About the meeting with francsHe maintained that he usually has “a very sincere dialogue”With the minister. He said that this Monday was “a very mature talk As always, working on refinancing” because, he revealed, “Chaco is a province that has been compromised.”

Meanwhile, in a message on his X account, the minister described the meeting as “a good conversation.” He added that they talked about “the serious problems inherited from the chaco and we highlight the importance of establishing a constructive dialogue to find solutions that promote the development of the country”.
