New Delhi, Nov. 26 : Prime Minister Narendra Modi has congratulated Mauricio Macri on becoming the President of Argentina.

“Greetings to Mr. @mauriciomacri on his poll win. Best wishes as he becomes Argentina’s President. India deeply values ties with Argentina,” Prime Minister Modi tweeted.

According to the New York Times, Macri emphasised how his administration would differ from that of the former president on foreign policy. He also announced plans to improve diplomatic ties with the United States, which became strained in recent years.

India- Argentina relations are cordial and encompass political, economic, scientific and technological cooperation including Antarctic research and cultural cooperation. (ANI)
