Terrorism and the war on terrorism dominate discussions of U.S. foreign policy. However, in hemispheric affairs, the U.S. has had considerable difficulty convincing our neighbors just how critical the war on terrorism is for all the members of the hemispheric community. Argentina is one country that was reluctant to go along with the U.S. for a while, but which now is cooperating closely with the U.S. on a number of projects. This seminar is one of a series that deals with issues critical to Argentina and to the bilateral relationship between Argentina and the United States. Our strategy in these public meetings is to place important Argentine issues in a broader context, so that different perspective can be made clear.
