Argentina’s president has sparked a diplomatic incident and been heavily criticised for claiming that Brazilians “came from the jungle.”

Alberto Fernandez made the comments in the presence of Prime Minister of Spain Pedro Sanchez who was in Buenos Aires for a one-day visit.

Referring to the country’s European migrants, Mr Fernandez said: “The Mexicans came from the Indians, the Brazilians came from the jungle, but we Argentines came from the ships. And they were ships that came from Europe.”

Mr Fernandez’s comments went viral on Twitter with people accusing him of racial insensitivity.
