“It is striking that the prime minister should dare to rebuff the Pope,”
These are the words of Alicia Castro, Argentina’s ambassador in London, in the latest salvo since the Pontiff was elected.
Argentina has attacked David Cameron for his criticism of the new Pope’s stance on the Falklands as the diplomatic dispute over the islands intensifies.
“It is striking that the prime minister should dare to rebuff the Pope, ” said Alicia Castro, Argentina’s ambassador in London, in the latest salvo since the Pontiff was elected.
She was responding to Mr Cameron’s comment that he “respectfully” disagreed with Pope Francis, who as cardinal in Buenos Aires said last year that Britain had “usurped” the islands from Argentina.
Cristina Kirchner, Argentina’s left-wing president, will seek to put her combative history with the Pope behind her when she becomes the first head of state to meet him on Monday.
Argentine media speculated that she would use the audience ahead of his installation mass on Tuesday to lobby him over her demands that Britain hold talks over the sovereignty of the islands.
While still a cardinal, the man who is now the new Pontiff had expressed the widely-held view in Argentina that the islands are “ours”. Asked about Pope Francis’s position on Friday, Mr Cameron said: “I disagree with him respectfully.”

It is worth noticing that Argentina wants to whole world to submit to the Pope.
The Latinos demand that even the protestant United Kingdom, who do not have the Pope as their head of church, must bow before the Pontiff.
I wonder what Argentina would have said, if a European Pope had said that the Falklands can remain under the Union Jack?
I guess that would have solved this territorial conflict, by an Argentinian surrender to the “Holy see”?
The truth is that the Catholic World is a not repairable mess. The Pope’s has put their noses into the affairs of the World for more than 1.000 years.
Jesus the Messiah did not come to bid for the political power in Jerusalem.
The new slogan in the Vatican seems to be:
“To Hell with the all lost souls and the business of the Kingdom of Heaven, as long as we run the affairs of Westminster”.
