Cuba's new ambassador presents his credentials to the Pope

"How are you, Mr. Ambassador?" "It is a pleasure to present the credentials to you.â? "Now as ambassador." Pope Francis already knew the new Cuban ambassador, Jorge Quesada, because for months he has been in Rome as number two of its embassy. He is a diplomatic prestige and was in charge of Cuba's relations with Europe and Canada. Although it was not specified in the protocol, the Pope gave the ambassador his writings. "...Evangelii Gaudium and Laudato si', which for me are very important." When a new ambassador arrives at the Vatican, usually his first goal is to get the Pope to visit his country. In this case, it will be quite difficult because Pope Francis has already been to Havana twice. However, he will have a lot of work to do in developing the framework agreement between the Catholic Church and the government of Raúl Castro. JMB/MB CTV SV - BN up:MB
