    Background: BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA

    Former Argentine President Maria Estela Peron ended her three year exile in Spain when she returned to Buenos Aires on May 20. She was met at the airport by Peronist leaders and a government official, who gave her a message from President Alfonsin. There was a mixed reaction from other people who came to greet her. Some cheered and shouted "Isobel", the former stage name by which she is commonly known. But as she made her way towards her hotel there was stone throwing by demonstrators. Police also arrested one man suspected of carrying firearms or explosives. Despite the protests, the cheers from the Peronists could not be drowned. Mrs Peron met with President Alfonsin on May 21. The President had invited her to return home to help the government's efforts to restore the economy and to renegotiate the terms of Argentina's 43.6 billion dollar foreign debt. Another major problem is inflation which is currently running at 522 per cent.
