Press Statement

Secretary of State
Washington, DC
October 27, 2010


I offer my deepest condolences to the people of Argentina and President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner on the passing of former President Nestor Kirchner. As President of Argentina and Secretary General of the Union of South American Nations, Nestor Kirchner was an advocate for the citizens of Argentina and a leading voice for South American integration.

During my visit to Buenos Aires earlier this year, President Fernandez de Kirchner and I reaffirmed the deep friendship between our countries, and as friends, the United States mourns with all Argentines. They have lost a leader and the Kirchner family has lost a beloved husband and father. Today our thoughts and prayers are with the President and her children.
