Government says Pope 'regrets' doubts about 'authentic' letter

Secretary to the Presidency Oscar Parrilli is escorted by Worship Secretary Guillermo Oliveri as they hold a press conference to ratify the "legitimacy" of Pope Francis'' letter to President Kirchner.

The Secretary to the Presidency Oscar Parrilli has held a press conference to inform Argentine ambassador to the Vatican Juan Pablo Cafiero was contacted by Pope Francis and affirmed the letter sent to President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner is “authentic.”

Cafiero addressed an official letter to the President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner today, explaining the pontiff contacted him to discuss the controversy over the missive that was made public by the federal government yesterday, in which the head of the Roman Catholic Church sent his blessing to the people of Argentina ahead of the May 25 National Holiday.

“The Holy Father regrets those who have sowed doubts and the media that wanted to take water out from the arid soil to create conflict,” Cafiero says in his letter and adds Francis “determinably” confirmed the message was “authentic,” sending an “warm greeting” to the Argentinean people and requesting to make this new official communication “public.”

“I expressed with gratitude a gesture of such respect and that the pope honours with the truth,” the Argentine ambassador adds.

After reading Cafiero’s message, Secretary Parrilli said the federal government “had no further comments” to make on the issue.
