He pointed through social networks "I am very happy and excited to be here in Argentina"

The new US ambassador in Argentina, Noah Mamet, was in favor of "expanding the friendship and cooperation" between the two countries through social networks.

Mamet revealed on his Twitter account that he is "very happy and excited" to be in Argentina and said he was "ready to start" his work as head of the US Embassy in Buenos Aires.

The new diplomatic responsible replaces Vilma Martinez after his nomination is approved by the US Congress last December.

The relations between Argentina and the United States, one of the major trading partners of South American country, tightened during 2014 by the decision of a New York judge who sentenced the Argentine government to pay 1,300 million, plus interest, debt creditors rejected restructuring offered by the Government.

The refusal of the Executive chaired by Cristina Fernández to abide by the verdict complicated Argentina payments must be made to the holders of restructured debt and brought the country to a halt partial payments.
