March 21, 2013
The Chief of Cabinet Juan Manuel Abal Medina said on Wednesday that it is not true that version that was indicating that the government was angry with former cardenal of Buenos Aires Jorge Bergoglio, recently proclaimed as Pope Francisco.
Abal Medina said, “In the newspaper Clarín instead of celebrating the appointment of Pope Francisco invent we were angry with former Cardinal Primate of Argentina, Jorge Bergoglio” and he considered that “these are lies.”
He lamented that instead of holding the designation as Supreme Pontiff Bergoglio the newspaper center is not the joy that people can have with an Argentine Pope, but the news is the impacted on the government.
“I regret that the media is inventing microclimate in that we supposedly were angry, and then as we didn’t, they say we changed; these are the lies that they believe.”
