BEIJING, Nov 21 (Reuters) - The Chinese foreign ministry said on Tuesday that it would be a "serious mistake" in Argentina's diplomacy if the South American nation were to cut ties with major countries like China or Brazil.
China is an important trading partner for Argentina, and its elected government attaches great importance to relations with China, Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson Mao Ning said at a regular news conference.
The right-wing libertarian has criticised China and Brazil, saying he won't deal with "communists," and favours stronger U.S. ties.
Mondino also told RIA Novosti that Argentina would "stop interacting" with the governments of China and Brazil, when asked whether Argentina would encourage exports and imports with those countries.
"China is willing to continue to work together with Argentina to promote the stability and long-term development of bilateral relations."
