We want Argentina to be stable and prosperous. Economically, we believe Argentina's International Monetary Fund (IMF) programme provides the best vehicle for macroeconomic stability. On 25 March we voted in favour of a new IMF deal to restructure the country's debt and in June we supported the completion of the first review of the deal programme.

The UK is keen to work with Argentina to continue to strengthen our bilateral relationship. This includes building on our recent cooperation on health, including on COVID-19 vaccines, on climate change and on human rights, notably as co-chairs of the Equal Rights Coalition. The UK condemns the recent assassination attempt on Vice President Kirchner and stands with the Government of Argentina in support of democracy and the rule of law, and against political violence.
