President Alberto Fernandez has invited the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Sergio Massa, to travel with him for the Summit of the Americas to be held between Wednesday and Friday in Los Angeles, United States.
Sources close to Massa have not yet confirmed his participation in the government delegation, as he first had to absorb the parliamentary agenda.
On Wednesday and Thursday, the House of Representatives will see action through two sessions in a row, so Massa will have to leave the agenda well organized should he be on the official trip.
Despite leaving doubts about his attendance at the Summit of the Americas, Massa was in a meeting with Alberto Fernandez all morning at Olivos headquarters, where they were to review the agenda they would carry at the heads of state meeting.
The Argentine president’s meeting with the Speaker of the House of Representatives comes after the departure of the Minister of Productive Development Matias Colvas, and the appointment of Daniel Cioli, who has so far held the position of ambassador to Brazil, as his replacement.
The president kept anonymous about his participation in the summit of heads of state until the last minute, and confirmed this only after a telephone conversation with his American counterpart Joe Biden.
