Foreign Secretary David Cameron met the Argentine Minister of Foreign Affairs, Diana Mondino at the G20 Foreign Ministers’ Summit in Rio de Janeiro on 21 February. It was a positive meeting, building on the Foreign Secretary’s discussion with President Milei at the World Economic Forum in January during which they agreed to embark on a new era of relations between Argentina and the UK. The Foreign Secretary and Foreign Minister Mondino agreed to take this forward by cooperating on areas of mutual interest, such as increased economic and trade links and youth mobility, as well as shared multilateral priorities. The Foreign Secretary also welcomed Argentina’s unwavering support for Ukraine in the face of Russian aggression. Both sides agreed to stand united in continuing to condemn the Russian government’s reprehensible actions, which are an egregious violation of international law and the UN Charter.  “The Foreign Secretary met the Argentine Foreign Minister Diana Mondino at the G20 Foreign Ministers’ Summit in Rio de Janeiro today [21 February 2024].
