New representative of Argentina presents credentials to OAS

WASHINGTON, USA – The new Permanent Representative of Argentina, Carlos Alberto Raimundi, presented his credentials Monday, to the secretary general of the Organization of American States (OAS), Luis Almagro, during a virtual ceremony.

Ambassador Raimundi indicated that he comes to the OAS with a firm commitment to equality. “For us that value is fundamental. It is absolutely necessary to build a platform of equality in a minimum threshold of rights,” the Argentine diplomat said. “Poverty is not a fact of nature, it is a fact that responds to the mismanagement of public resources through the economy and through politics,” he added.

For his part, secretary general Almagro welcomed ambassador Raimundi and stated that he “fully agrees with what you have expressed regarding the need to create better conditions of equality in this hemisphere. Being the most unequal region of all is definitely not an accolade, it is not an achievement of which we can be proud. Rather the complete opposite.”

Before assuming his position as Permanent Representative, Raimundi was a national deputy for the province of Buenos Aires and chair of the Mercosur Joint Parliamentary Commission, among other positions. Ambassador Raimundi is also a lawyer and a university professor.
