Meetings with militants tend to take away the solemnity of the main referents of the Frente de Todos.

It already happened to Alberto Fernández, when in a virtual meeting of the Justicialista Party he said that the day the pandemic ended there would be "a banner from the Argentines of good"; and today it was Santiago Cafiero who left the solemnity aside and, the day in that the mission of the International Monetary Fund closes its work in Argentina, urged

"not to depend" on multilateral organizations

and included it in a list of sectors that, according to its vision, "goes in the opposite direction" to the policy of the Government.

"As a national and popular government, we cannot depend on the markets, we cannot depend on the large media firms,

we cannot depend on multilateral organizations


those international lobbies

, because that precisely goes in the opposite direction to what we have been doing. ", launched the Chief of Staff at the inauguration of the National University Meeting of the Frente de Todos, before accompanying the President at the event in San Pedro.

With a harsh tone, the Chief of Staff marked the Government's strategic rivals.

"They will

never support us

, they will always be building in a contrary sense to the tasks that we are proposing ourselves and carrying out," he emphasized, by highlighting the role of universities and teachers as "support to give that dispute" .

"We have to make ourselves strong there, because

on the other court we lose, he will not accompany us,

" reflected the coordinating minister, who was accompanied - virtually - by his colleagues from the Cabinet

Roberto Salvarezza

(Science, Technology and Innovation) and 

Nicolás Trotta


and other officials of the ruling party such as the presidential advisor Dora Barrancos and the secretary of University Policies, Jaime Perczyk.

Beyond being a closed meeting for militants, Cafiero's statements occurred just when, after a ten-day work in the country, the IMF delegation led Julie Kozak, deputy director of the Department for the Western Hemisphere, and Luis Cubeddu , head of the mission for Argentina, will return to Washington.

In what appears to be a strategy of tension to reach an agreement, Cafiero played in tandem with Fernández, who days ago recalled how the IMF during

Mauricio Macri's administration

had "violated the statutes to finance financial speculation and capital outflows" .

Alberto Fernández and Santiago Cafiero, at the Quinta de Olivos.

In this way, with this harsh tone, the chief of staff

winked at harsh Kirchnerism

, a sector that often questions it, whose block in the Senate drafted a letter criticizing the IMF.  

In this sense, in a brief intervention, the man of extreme confidence of Alberto F. also took the opportunity to call to "strengthen the unity of the Frente de Todos, not only on the electoral front but on the political front."

"We have to rescue this idea of ​​unity, which is our most visible strength.

Our enemies perceive it and that is why they attack us

," he considered.
