The Second Vice President and Minister of Labor, Yolanda Díaz, has talked with Pope Francis on the legislative decrees he has undertaken Spain to alleviate the crisis and the concept of work as a social agent that gives dignity and provides equality, according to government sources Spanish.
Diaz himself, who has come accompanied by the Secretary of State for Employment, Joaquín Pérez Rey, has limited himself to ensuring that it has been a "very exciting" encounter. "It has been a very exciting encounter and I must be respectful and I will not be able to reveal the content of the conversation with the Holy Father," she has referred to journalists stationed at St. Peter's Square.
The Sources of the Executive have framed the visit as a cordial meeting of which the Government President was informed, Pedro Sánchez, as the spokeswoman for the Government already explained that the President had known the appointment for 15 days.
During the meeting at the Apostolic Palace of the Vatican, the Second Vice President has given the Pope a stole made of recycled plastic and a special edition of the Book of Poems of the Galician Writer Rosalía de Castro, Folhas Novas.
The gifts embody so much the ecological vision of the world and the defense of migrants than Pope and Díaz share, according to sources from Spanish Government. The stole fabric is made of polymers from discards of plastics and has been embroidered by the convent of the barefoot carmelites of Alcalá de Henares. In addition, the compendium of poems of the Galician writer is the book that many of them carried with him on her suitcases when he put direction to Argentina in the 60's decade.
The date with Díaz was scheduled around 11:00 in the morning after the meeting that the Pontiff has maintained with the prefect of the Congregation for Bishops, Cardinal Marc Ouellet and before the meeting with the participants of the plenary The Congregation for the Consecrated Life Institutes, according to the Agenda made public this Saturday by the Vatican.
The Vice President of the Government, who only had this meeting on agenda with the Pope, will return this afternoon to Madrid.Date Of Update: 11 December 2021, 08:09
