Pope denies calling meeting between gov't, business & union leaders

Pope Francis today dismissed reports that he had called for a meeting between representatives of Cristina Fernández de Kirchner's government and members of the Argentine Industrial Union (UIA) and CGT union, with the supposed aim of discussing economic issues.

The pontiff moved to deny speculation circulating in several media outlets which informed that he had called for a round-table discussion in the Vatican, ahead of scheduled collective pay negotiations.

According to the reports, the pope would receive on March 19 Work Minister Carlos Tomada; UIA president Héctor Méndez and deputy Daniel Funes de Rioja, and head of the construction union Uocra Gerardo Martínez.

But Francis, formerly Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio, put an end to speculation during a telephone conversation with a Cronica journalist, whom he told that the rumours were "nonsense".
