However, Iza and Alexandra Vela, who was relaxed at the end of the meeting, said they agreed on three points: credit, price control of agricultural inputs and bicultural bilingual education.
“We can say agreement when the six points are encompassed, while they are match points”Said Alexandra Vela. Meanwhile, Iza said: “There is a lot of progress, but there is no agreement.”
The strongest point is the subsidy for fuels. “The price of fuel we leave in the hands of the President. In 15 days we will have the answer. We proposed: $ 1.50 for diesel and $ 2.10 for gasoline ”. There are also no agreements on “fuels, mining and oil,” Vela said. (JG)
