Argentine President Cristina Fernandez received Mexican singer Luis Miguel, currently visiting the South American country to give a series of concerts.

Officials said that Fernandez met with the artist in her office in the Casa Rosada, seat of the Argentine presidency.

Upon entering her office, Miguel greeted members of the human rights group Grandmothers of the Plaza de Mayo, who had been received earlier by Fernandez.

Luis Miguel followed his meeting with the head of state by offering a recital at a gala dinner with fans in Buenos Aires, something he had done once before on Oct. 15.

The singer kicked off a series of concerts in Argentina on Oct. 13 in the northern province of Corrientes, and his tour will continue to the cities of Rosario and Cordoba. EFE
