Business, union leaders also deny Pope call for a meeting
Business and union leaders today came on stage to dismiss media rumours which indicated that Pope Francis had called a meeting with them in order to reach agreements and “guarantee the social peace.”
Cabinet Chief Jorge Capitanich this morning dismissed such rumours and criticized some media outlets for "dishonouring" the Pope's name.
"We haven’t been summoned to any meeting, and that has already been rejected. We are surprised to see this kind of information,” former president of the Argentine Industrial Union Juan Carlos Lascurain said this morning.
The Secretary-General of UOCRA construction union Gerardo Martínez expressed “surprise” and commented on a trip to the Vatican he is planning with Labour Minister Carlos Tomada and Vice President of the UIA Daniel Funes de Rioja to invite the Pope to attend the upcoming WTO summit.
