On March 13th 2013 the Conclave crowned Jorge Mario Bergoglio new Pope of the Catholic Church. The seventy-six year old Argentinian, whose parents are originated from the Italian region Piedmont, since 1998 archbishop of Buenos Aires, since 2001 Cardinal, is the first American and the first Jesuit to ascend to the pontifical seat.

From 14th to 17th May, an official delegation of the Federation Council of the Russian Federation headed by Chairman V. I. Matviyenko visited Mexico and Cuba. They were an integral part of the parliamentary dimension of the whole multi-vectored foreign policy, which modern Russia effectively applies based on the principles of equality, mutual respect and mutually beneficial cooperation between the multipolar systems of international relations.
