The first question was answered by the Cultural Counsellor of the Argentine Embassy in China Mr. Juan Cortelletti, “Chinese President Xi Jinping met with Argentinean President Mauricio Macri in Washington D.C. on April 1st this year. Both leaders agreed to expand the exchange and collaboration in many fields, such as culture, education, technology, youth development and sports. In your opinions, as teenagers in the two countries, how will we continue developing the traditional friendship between China and Argentina?” the junior journalist asked.
Mr. Juan Cortelletti answered, on April 1st this year, Chinese President Xi Jinping met with Argentinean President Mauricio Macri in Washington D.C. He expressed the willingness to cooperate with China in the international affairs and supported China to be the host country for the G20 Summit in Hangzhou this year. Regarding to the youth exchange between the two countries, the Argentine Embassy has already become the bridge for the youth exchanges between China and Argentina. We will ensure that the Chinese students in Argentina will receive their official certification after completing their education there. Just like us today, the students and youth can be communicate face to face in the future. Your English is very good. I believe our talk will go smoothly.
“I’m a football fan and pay close attention to the Argentine football team in the World Cup games. Could you please share your views about the Argentinean national team’s status with us?”
针对阿根廷队在美洲杯中的失利和梅西退出国家队这两个焦点新闻，向新闻官María Florencia Rossi女士询问阿根廷国家队目前情况。María Florencia Rossi女士表示，大家都希望梅西能够回归国家队，而且也相信这只是时间的问题。只是原国家队的主教练退出，现在正在物色新教练。阿根廷球队曾获得多项荣誉，2届世界杯冠军，14届美洲杯冠军和1届联合杯冠军。虽然今年错失美洲杯冠军，但是小记者们期待这支富有传奇色彩的球队重振旗鼓后强势回归！
When talking about Argentine football team’s loss in the Copa America and Messi's retire from the national team, Press Officer Ms. Maria Florencia Rossi expressed her feelings about the Argentine national football team. We all hope Messi would come back to the national team, I believe this is only the timing issue. The national football team is looking for a new coach now. This team has received so many honors in the past, including 2 World Cup Championships, 14 Copa America Championships and one FIFA Confederations Cup Championship. Although the team lost the Copa America game this year, the junior journalists are looking forward to seeing the strong return of this incredible football team in history.
2016年是“中阿文化交流年”，两国的众多领导出席了今年3月的开幕式。教育官María Noel Borsellino女士向小记者们介绍了不同的活动，做了一个简短而又完整的预告。活动主要分为三个板块——舞蹈、音乐和视觉艺术。阿根廷的舞蹈队和乐队都应邀来中国巡演。中阿还互相展览美术作品，其中有一幅《能量与时间》有10米长，它用宣纸和墨汁画成，结合了许多中国元素。两国艺术家也互相交流——举办音乐会。大家都希望中阿两国之间文化交流活动越来越多。
