Argentina: An Overview [Updated July 15, 2019]   [open pdf - 508KB]

From the Document: "U.S.-Argentine relations have been characterized by robust commercial linkages and cooperation on issues such as nonproliferation, human rights, education, and science and technology. There were periodic tensions under the Kirchner governments, but Macri's election brought to power a government committed to improving bilateral relations. President Obama engaged the Macri government on a range of bilateral, regional, and global issues, and he visited Argentina in 2016. Strong bilateral relations are continuing under the Trump Administration. President Macri visited the White House in April 2017, and the two leaders underscored their commitment to expand trade and investment and pledged strengthened partnership to combat narcotics trafficking, money laundering, terrorist financing, and corruption, and to increase engagement on cyber issues. In September 2018, President Trump reaffirmed strong U.S. support for Argentina's engagement with the IMF [International Monetary Fund]."
