G20 Summit: Cristina avoided to greet Cameron or Rajoy
June 19, 2012
President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner avoided at all costs greeting British Prime Minister David Cameron and Spanish President Mariano Rajoy. The first due to the dispute over the Falkland Islands and the second for the nationalization of YPF.
Summit host Mexican President Felipe Calderon made the arrangements in order that Cristina was not near any of these two leaders in the so-called “family photo”.
Rajoy was located on the third row while Cameron to the opposite side that president of Argentina occupied, standing in the front row.
But even Cristina had to overcome the obstacle of not greet either, when they entered the room where the photograph was to be taken.
The president turned conveniently when Cameron walked past her, making a huge diplomatic effort. While on the other hand, the British also made no attempt to approach her.
