Address by H. E. Mr. Alberto Alfredo Manuel Trueba, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Argentina to the Republic of Bulgaria, on the occasion of the national holiday of the country

As Ambassador of the Republic of Argentina to the Republic of Bulgaria, I am honoured to use the opportunity provided to me by the magazine "Diplomatic Spectrum" to address our compatriots, local government officials, our Bulgarian friends and colleagues from the diplomatic corps, accredited in Sofia, warmest congratulations on the occasion of the 210th anniversary of the May Revolution.

The establishment of the First Government on May 25th 1810 marked the beginning of our path as an independent nation and became a primeval date for every Argentine, a day of celebration, love for the Fatherland, respect for our heroes and fraternal relations.

Due to the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic, this year we were unable to hold the traditional reception that used to bring us all together every year.

We are confident that in the foreseeable future we will have new opportunities to meet again and share moments of friendship and closeness.

I would like to express my gratitude for all the congratulations we have received on the occasion of the national holiday of Argentina and to wish our compatriots and friends good health and prosperity.

I sincerely hope that with God's help we will soon overcome the difficulties that have befallen us.

Kind regards,

Alberto A. M. Trueba
