Argentina’s Foreign Minister Jorge Faurie told reporters that a number of issues were discussed during the meeting behind closed doors. While the possibility of selling U.S. military equipment was allegedly floated during the encounter, Argentina emphasized that it did not have the funds to make any purchase. “At this very moment, we’re not in the best position of acquiring military weapons from anywhere,” Faurie said, according to Argentine newspaper El Clarín.
