President Alberto Fernández said Wednesday that libertarian presidential candidate Javier Milei is seen across the world as "someone who is not well."
"The perception is of someone who is not well and who is not saying reasonable things," said the head of state as he responded to a question at a press conference in Beijing.
The Peronist leader was being quizzed about Milei's chances of winning Sunday's election and what his potential turn as head of state would mean for Argentina.
The La Libertad Avanza deputy has previously stated that he does not want to have diplomatic relations with Brazil or China if elected president as he sees both nations as "communist."
Fernández said he "does not attach importance" to Milei's statements and observed that during his meetings in China with business representatives they expressed their intention to deepen investments in Argentina in the coming years.
"Next year is going to be a splendid year and I hope that when Argentines go to vote on Sunday they don't frustrate that path," Fernández stressed.
The president finishes his trip to China on Wednesday, which took in the cities of Shanghai and Beijing.
In addition to meetings with businessmen, the national president took part in the Third Forum of the Belt and Road initiative, and held a bilateral meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping.
