Bolivia’s exiled ex-president Evo Morales arrived in Buenos Aires on Thursday where he is to seek political asylum, Argentina’s Foreign Minister Felipe Sola announced.

Morales “has just landed at Ezeiza (airport). He’s coming to stay in Argentina as an asylum seeker and will then have refugee status,” Sola told TN television.

The new Argentine minister said Morales “feels more comfortable here than in Mexico,” which initially offered him asylum when he fled Bolivia last month.
