After the controversial sentence that the presidential spokeswoman, Gabriela Cerruti, pronounced before the Minister of Equality of Spain, Irene Montero, the Argentine official published an apology on the social network Twitter: “I deeply regret if any family member of covid victims who has honored their loved ones by symbolically leaving stones, was offended by my words. I sincerely apologize and reiterate my respect and accompaniment to pain and mourning“.
To this he added: “I made a mistake by wanting to point out the political use of pain and death that some sectors made and continue to make. The whole society will be marked by this time of anguish that we are beginning to leave behind collectively”.
