Télam. National News Agency of Argentina.October 16, 2009. President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner was received in private by her Highness of Morocco, the Princess Lalla Salma Bennani, at the Real Palace, during the stopover that the Argentine Chief-of-State made in that country when returning to Argentina.

nothing mentioned in Maghreb Arab Press though

According to this thread, Salma during this meeting of an hour, have questioned Argentinean president about detail of her travel to India. Personally, I find that if all the discussion was about this travel, it's more a discussion that you can have if you welcome a friend (because it’s basically curiosity), than a discussion between Moroccan princess and Argentinean President, since Mme Kirchner except if she did some touristic visits can't give her any info (or only what you can found on newspapers) about what she did in India, and for sure she will never say her what she think really about her travel.
For me, speak 5 minutes about this travel and the rest of the time of what concerns Morocco and Argentina (struggle against cancer or cultural exchanges or anything else) would be more useful than to ask during an hour, questions about an official visit of a foreign president to another foreign country.

about the article of TELA S.E, personally, it's the word "details" that makes me laugh, I imagine lalla salma flooding during an hour President Kirchner of questions about her official visit, and the president who give her only trivialities. Because what can Mme Kirchner say about her official travel to India to a foreigner except trivialities, she is a head of state not a first lady, perhaps it's that what forgot lalla salma. A first lady has social activities during an official travel, and she can speak of it to a foreign princess, a head of state has political and economic activities which are more sensitive subjects.
I think that the conversation would have been much more interesting for Mme kirchner if it turned around Morocco and Argentina and not around a third country.

I am enough sure that if the president was a man, Lalla Salma would not have been choose to meet him, but the president would have been welcomed by prime minister or foreign affairs minister, I found this attitude "macho", because they acted as Mme Kirchner was a first lady and not a head of state.

an article on mme. kirchner's visit to morocco on her way back, in spanish.
Una "escala real" en Marruecos - lanacion.com

i feel bad that a classy lady such as princess lalla salma decided to meet cristina fernandez. appart from her expensive tastes and shopping sprees during her official trips, i doubt they have anything else that may be of interest to salma (good manners included).

Carlota,i think Lalla Salma invite Mrs kirchner only by courtesy,kind of diplomatic courtesy as the king was outside on France with his sick brother.

To be honest, I suspect that Cristina Kirchner's visit was more of a pit-stop than anything else. Morocco is the last place her plane would have been able to stop before it crossed the Atlantic Ocean and I would be surprised if she would make a direct flight from India to Argentina. IMO.

Yes, it was only a break of some hours, President Kirchner was in official visit to India, and he stopped in Morocco for some hours
By way, I don’t think that salma was the right person to meet the president, even it was only a visit of some hours, she is only a princess when kirchner is head of state, The king and his brother were broad, but the prime minister, the chief of parliament, and the foreign affairs minister were in morocco, as said samia, they act as if Kirchner was a first lady and not a head of state, personally I don’t know anything about this lady, but she is a president and it’s would be more respectful if she would be welcome by a high responsible than by the king’s wife.

I thought she was only there for an hour?

It does seem slightly unusual that Salma met her, would it be normal for the PM to have met her instead?

I dont see anything wrong with Salma meeting her, Salma is the Kings wife and it is very normal for a ruiling wife to met another rulers/presidents wife. At the end, this was a private meeting and probably Salma had invited her so the presidents wife wouldnt sit at the airport and wait. I think it was quit enice of her to do so.

if Mme Kirchner was a first lady, it would be normal that it was salma who met her, but since Mme Kirchner is the president of argentina and not the argentinean presiden'ts wife, it would be more appropriate if she had a meeting with prime minister or any other high political responsible than with the king's wife
imo, I think that it was salma who wanted this meeting, perhaps she was curious to ask her about her job of president, and it's for that as said the article she asked about the details of the official visit to India
