Cristina Fernández in Mexico

Argentine President Cristina Fernández is visiting Mexico, after the postponement of an earlier planned trip. She notably met first with Carlos Slim and other businessmen - Slim is said to consider major investments in Argentina. Both Fernández and her foreign minister, Héctor Timerman, has expressed criticism of U.S. drug fighting strategies: Timerman noted that,
"we already know from where the guns come, and who consumes the drugs; what Mexico provides, is the dead"
Fernández expressed solidarity with Mexico over the scourge of the drug cartels, and called for the more developed countries to reduce consumption, weapons smuggling, and money laundering.

All pretty sensible to me.
