Macri vows City 'will remain on alert' after possible terror threats
Buenos Aires Mayor Mauricio Macri assured that the city remains “on alert and will be at the service of the National Government” when facing the possibility of a terrorist attack like the one suggested by the United States on Tuesday.
“We Argentines have a higher degree of sensitivity when it comes to this because we have suffered two terrorist attacks, so from here we are at the service of the National Government for whatever it is they need. This is a matter in which we must all stand together,” he stated.
When asked about the recent accusations made by the US government against Iran, Macri urged for the fight against terror to remain a high priority.
After heading his weekly cabinet meeting, Mayor Macri considered that people “should wait for the investigations to move forward, so more information is available and we can reach a conclusion.”
He warned, however, not to create a cause for alarm.
He concluded by assuring that his administration “would remain alert,” adding that the City’s security cameras system includes buildings “considered to be likely targets of terrorist attacks.”
