The Chilean government responds to the Argentine president due to her tweets on LAN
The Chilean government said that President Sebastian Pinera met with the laws of his country to take charge and dispose of the shares held in the company LAN.
Through his foreign minister Alfredo Moreno, Chile government responded the statements on that airline and its link to Piñera that President Cristina Kirchner made during the last weekend .
Through a series of tweets, the Head of State said: “LAN deserves another paragraph.
Can anyone imagine if Aerolineas Argentinas rather than recovered flag line had been a company of my own and when I’m elected president would have ‘sold’?”
The answer came quickly from Santiago de Chile, through Chancellor Moreno, as published on Monday the newspaper La Tercera. “In Chile, the president and parliamentarians are elected democratically, with full transparency of its trajectory and its heritage and interests.
Once elected, from the president to any public official must meet high standards of transparency and declare their wealth and all their interests,” Moreno said.
According to the official counterpart, “the president, other government officials, voluntarily decided to sell its entire stake in various companies, to avoid any potential future conflicts of interest.”
The conflict erupted when Argentine government demanded to the Chilean company, leave the hangar occupied in Buenos Aires Aeroparque due to the expansion work being done in that terminal.
But LAN rejected the measure, arguing that it could not operate without this hangar and threatened to stop operating in Argentina if official initiative prospered.
Finally, Justice did result in an appeal submitted by the airline, and the eviction of the hangar was for the time suspended.
