July 20 (Xinhua) — Argentina has a problem: It has a hard time communicating its own actions to the world and is increasingly seen as a bogeyman by some, writes Julio Cabrera, chairman of the ruling Socialists.

“Argentina’s policies have global repercussions,” he wrote in a letter to Argentine President Mauricio Macri on Thursday.

Argentina has been under a state of internal conflict for several months, after the military ousted a left-wing leader, President Mauricio Macri, and replaced him with an ultra-right-wing president.

On April 9, the day after Macri won a second four-year mandate, the country’s supreme court declared Macri’s victory by decree, ousting his popular vice president and all his ministers, an unconstitutional act that paved the way for his successor Jorge Fernandez to take office.

The presidential crisis has raised tensions with the United States and Latin American neighbors such as Brazil, over Macri’s government policies.

The United States has been trying to encourage Argentina to continue its diplomatic efforts in resolving the crisis, which has worsened in recent weeks with the arrival of an extra US military aid group in the country.

Cabrera said in his letter to his counterpart, written on the eve of Argentina’s commemoration of the 100th anniversary of its independence from Spain, that the country’s internal struggles do not affect its relationship with the United States or its global role.

He noted that Macri’s government had rejected a request from the United States to participate in the upcoming international forum on migration held in Washington, D.C., in June, and that, in any event, its relationship with the United States has improved in recent years.

Also, Argentina is committed to the bilateral agreements in place, he said.
