Chancellor Scholz on a state visit to Argentina – politics

The Federal Chancellor is traveling through Latin America for four days to make new friends and deepen old ones. The talks revolve around raw materials, energy and the faltering Mercosur agreement.

When Olaf Scholz landed in Buenos Aires on Saturday afternoon just before 6 p.m. local time, that was a small success in itself. The German Chancellor traveled to the Argentine capital for the last time in 2018. At that time, however, there was a serious breakdown shortly after departure from Berlin, a defect in the radio systems, which forced the government plane to land again after just one hour. Scholz, who was still Vice-Chancellor at the time, had to change to a Spanish airliner with Angela Merkel. In the end, both were a day late for the G-20 summit, which was then taking place in Buenos Aires.
