Farm asks to suspend export tariffs. Cristina listens, though not answering

Portada en Ingles

Yesterday's meeting between Argentine president Cristina de Kirchner and the four farming leaders was tense.

Everything was reduced to a single request: suspending export tariff rise for 60 days.

Cristina said nothing. For a staunch kirchnerist, she said "no" with her silence. For a farm supporter, she at least did not say "no" as it would have happened only a week ago.

It was just a rapprochement and a promise of future meetings.

What's certain is that Cristina will no longer participate, cabinet chief Alberto Fernandez will be the sole interlocutor.
