"China has always given high importance to the development of China-Argentina relations from a strategic and long-term perspective", said Mao Ning, the spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, "The development of China-Argentina relations has become a consensus among all sectors of the society in both countries and it has brought tangible benefits to the people of both countries. "
He said that China is willing to work with Argentina for the continuation of China-Argentina friendship. "China supports related development and revitalization through win-win cooperation", he said.
Meili, who describes himself as an 'anarchist capitalist', has made major changes by removing the Peronist coalition that has dominated Argentina's politics for a long time. He vowed to cut ties with China, one of Argentina's top trading partners, as well as with Brazil, saying, "I will not do business with communists."
