Political Profile

Cristina Fernandez - 05 Feb 2015
Recent and archive images of Argentine President Cristina Fernandez.

Fernandez, on a tour of China to strengthen ties as the economy teeters on the brink of a recession, appeared to commit a diplomatic blunder on Wednesday by poking fun at how the Chinese speak.

While Fernandez's remark on Twitter that the Chinese pronounce the letter 'r' as an 'l' will be taken by her supporters as a light-hearted joke typical of her folksy style on social media, she may have offended her hosts.

In her message, Fernandez suggested that the Chinese struggled to pronounce "rice", "petroleum" and "Campora," the Spanish name given to the youth wing of her political party.

"More than 1,000 participants at the event ... Are they all from the Campola and in it only for the lice and petroleum?" Fernandez tweeted.

Argentina has turned to China for loans to bolster its thin foreign reserves and financing for energy and rail projects as it grapples with another debt default and a stagnating economy.

There was no immediate reaction from Beijing.

Fernandez de Kirchner looks set to win an easy re-election on Sunday after a dramatic comeback that has confounded critics of her unconventional economic policies and combative style. A center-leftist who has given the state a leading role in the economy, Fernandez has rebounded from low approval ratings and angry protests by farmers and middle-class voters that erupted early in her first term. Polls show she could win more than 50 percent of the vote on Sunday. REUTERS/Martin Acosta (ARGENTINA - Tags: POLITICS ELECTIONS PROFILE BUSINESS TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY)

The conflict has eroded the popularity of President Cristina Fernandez, and in an effort to ease tensions she asked Congress on Tuesday to ratify the tax hike on soy exports that triggered the country's deepest political crisis in six years.
