    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – Pope Francisco today received the president of Costa Rica, Laura Chinchilla, in a private audience where she invited him to visit the country after addressing issues such as international peace, solidarity and ecology.

    She met with the pope for 25 minutes in the Apostolic Palace Library.

    The president of Costa Rica reached the Vatican without her husband, accompanied by a delegation of 12 people.

    Dressed in a black suit and veil, the president greeted the Pope with a handshake, while Francis said to make herself at home.

    The delegation included Foreign Minister Enrique Castillo, the education minister, Carlos Roversi, the country’s ambassador to the Vatican, Fernando Sanchez, and the deputy of the National Liberation Party, Ileana Brenes, among others.

    The president was received in May 2012 by the then Pope Benedict XVI and ten months later also attended the enthronement of Jorge Bergoglio.

    After the hearing, the Costa Rican president appeared before the media at a hotel in Rome and said that during the meeting with the Pope there was a “very fluid dialogue” with a large overlap between the values ​​and principles advocated by Costa Rica and concerns the pontiff.

    Chinchilla said that Pope Francisco can leave a beautiful footprint for world peace and felt that the Church can play a key role in areas that are returning to the international level such as the control of chemical and nuclear weapons.

    They also highlighted the work done by her country in the momentum of treaties concerning trade in arms and the reopening of talks on nuclear disarmament.

    About the confrontation that exists around Nicaragua San Juan River border, Chinchilla reported that they had a lot of opportunity to talk about the particular case.
