Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador demanded that the International Monetary Fund (IMF) treat Argentina fairly, and urged it to assume its responsibility for Argentina’s excessive debt.
At his morning press conference at the National Palace, the president noted that the IMF now wants to impose conditions on Argentina, which he knows will further impoverish the Argentine people.
He demanded that the IMF leaders act with honesty and ethics and just recognize that they made the mistake of giving credits to a bankrupt government (of former President Mauricio Macri) beyond what is reasonable for political reasons in order to try to win the elections again.
They wanted him in power and gave him money to try to do so, but what they did was to aggravate Argentina’s economic and financial crisis. Now they want the new government to pay them immediately for what they caused and they are imposing completely unfair and immoral conditions, he said.
Hopefully the IMF will rectify and accept its responsibility, as well as those allied foreign governments that promoted those credits (to Macri) that should have never been granted, he added.
