Obama stressed that Chile is a country “reliable for investments” during a meeting with Bachelet
The U.S. president also recognized Chile as a “model of democracy”, being able to make transitions from governments positioned from left to right center.
President of the United States, Barack Obama, received on Monday the Mandataria President Michelle Bachelet in the Oval Office of the White House. On the occasion, the head of the U.S. Government highlighted Chile as a “model of democracy” and “a country reliable to investment”.
“Chile has been a model of democracy in Latin America. It was able to make constant transitions of center-left governments to center-right governments, but always in a manner consistent with democratic traditions,” Obama said.
Given this, Bachelet expressed her willingness to deepen trade relations with the North American country “areas like energy, education, science and technology.”
So the heads of state held a relaxed conversation where even Obama was not late to praise the President. “You are my second favorite Michelle”, making allusion to his wife and First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama.
Also he took time to highlight the Chilean football team, which was eliminated in the second round against Brazil in penalty shoot was taken. “He had a great development” in the World and “they could have won the cup,” he said.
