The future chancellor of Milei also spoke of the continuity of Daniel Scioli at the head of the Brazilian Embassy. He also acknowledged that Gerardo Werthein is the person "considered" for the U.S. Embassy.


The future Foreign Minister Diana Mondino spoke on Monday of her "whirlwind" trip to Brazil to bring Javier Milei closer to the government of that country, after the libertarian's harsh criticism of President Lula Da Silva during the campaign.

On this point, he denied having a tense relationship with the authorities of that country and maintained that "it is nonsense that it has been assumed that there could be any difficulty" in bilateral relations.

Regarding the future of Daniel Scioli at the Brazilian Embassy, he replied that "he is the ambassador until December 10" and that on that day he ends his duties as political ambassador, but pointed out that it is "clear and evident" that there is an "excellent relationship" between the official of Alberto Fernández and the Brazilian authorities.

Asked about the reasons for this "whirlwind" trip, the future chancellor said that although Javier Milei's government takes office on December 10, "there are a lot of issues that have to be left ready." "We are very close to the possibility of signing the Mercosur-European Union agreement," he added.

Regarding the possibility of Lula coming to Argentina to participate in Milei's inauguration, he indicated that "he is invited, but it is not easy for a head of state to organize his agenda to be able to attend." "The formal invitations haven't gone out yet," he said.

Asked in an interview with Radio Mitre if Gerardo Werthein will be Milei's U.S. ambassador, she replied that they are "planning several political ambassadors and he is one of the people who is considered."

"Gerardo is currently accompanying Javier on his tour to the United States. I don't confirm, but you have eyes to see," he said about the trip that begins this Monday the libertarian, in which he is also accompanied by Luis Caputo.

In another part of the interview, Mondino said that the geopolitical vision of La Libertad Avanza will be centered on "multilateralism." "We are not going to be only with one group and against another group, the policies we are going to carry out are those of a liberal democracy," he remarked.

The future official met this Sunday in Brasilia with the Minister of Foreign Affairs of that country, Mauro Vieira, as part of the presentation of the elected government of Javier Milei to President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva.

Mondino gave Vieira an invitation so that Lula can be present at Milei's inauguration ceremony on Dec. 10, a statement from the Itamaraty Palace said.

The meeting began after 13 p.m. as part of the new Argentine administration's rapprochement with Brazil, a week after Milei's election as president, and the meeting was attended by the Argentine ambassador in Brasilia, Daniel Scioli, and the Brazilian ambassador in Buenos Aires, Julio Bitelli.

"The deputy-elect and foreign minister appointed by the Milei government, Diana Mondino, is in Brasilia for a working meeting with Minister Mauro Vieira. On the occasion, he delivered the invitation of President-elect Javier Milei for President Lula to participate in the inauguration, on December 10," said the statement from the Itamaraty Palace distributed to the press.

The invitation came after President Milei invited former Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro to the inauguration last Monday, who organized a delegation for the trip to Buenos Aires of more than 20 people, including three governors.
