In the framework of the Third Summit of Heads of State held in Lima, Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner referred to the history of alfajores.

The president of Argentina explained that “I should presuppose the prefix ‘al’, of alfajor,” adding that “we all know that in Hispanic culture, all you have to have the prefix Arabic origin, than it was Arab culture on the peninsula Iberian”.
