US Treasury Secretary Jacob J. Lew said that this agreement paves the way for the reinsertion of Argentina into the world economy and constitutes a major new step forward in the relationship between the United States and Argentina.  Argentine Finance Minister Alfonso Prat-Gay said that this agreement is a consequence of the efforts being made by his country to regain credibility and that the Argentine government is rebuilding institutions, governance, and undertaking structural reforms.
