Cristina Kirchner said directly to the charge d'affaires of the embassy, Kevin Sullivan, who last week had said that Argentina had to quickly exit the default, banned word in the presidential speech. "I know him and know who he is," warned the diplomat, and considered the recommendation made for tourists visiting the country was a "huge challenge" in which she would not fall.

He said reading the audience led by Griesa in which he decided contempt, we found that the judge made ​​the right decision two days before the Argentina make the repayment of the debt, as when he delivered the judgment in against the country the day before the deposition of the first installment of that payment.

"The problem is not with the holdauts, the problem is that they want to tear down the restructuring of sovereign debt", said the president, who estimated that such measures against the country suggest that "want to return to debt thousand million and if that means they have to wipe sovereignty with respect to international standards, they have no problem, they raze as they raze all throughout the world"

"Sure he stated that the drafted the note announcing the default in Argentina, but we will not take the country, because we already know; if we threw out there, the one that comes not know who is and is a double problem: when you have to let him know that youknow him. "

"I think the letter sent today a joint designed to provoke," defined the President, but added: "I ​​want to tell all Argentines that I'm not angry, I'm not going to be seen angry, because when one rules can not get angry, has too many responsibilities and must act with a cool head and warm heart. "
