Former Uruguayan President to Pope Francis: Be tough on world leaders

 

"Dear neighbor!�

"Doing well?�

"Good, I'm alive.�

"You're alive!�

"I am alive, yes, I survive.�

This hug and colorful greeting kicked off Pope Francis' meeting with José Mújica, the former president of Uruguay. He was accompanied by his wife, Lucí­a Topolansky. 

That afternoon, Mújica promoted his book in Rome. He told journalists and fans how his second meeting with Pope Francis went, and what they talked about.

"Beautiful. I spoke about the problems of integration in Latin America.�

Aside from more serious topics, the two also got into a discussion about something that Pope Francis misses as Pope: the local drink mate. 

"If we had known, we would have brought one.�

Before leaving, Mújica made a request.

"Thank you. Thank you, and do not forget to be tough to all the world leaders.�
