THE POPE RECEIVES PRESIDENT NICOLAS SARKOZY

VATICAN CITY, 8 OCT 2010 (VIS) - The Holy See Press Office today released the following communique:

  "This morning the Holy Father Benedict XVI received in audience Nicolas Sarkozy, president of France.

  "The president subsequently went on to meet with Cardinal Secretary of State Tarcisio Bertone S.D.B. who was accompanied by Archbishop Dominique Mamberti, secretary for Relations with States.

  "The cordial discussions focused on the international political situation, including the Middle East peace process, the position of Christians in various different countries, and increasing the representation of world regions in multilateral organisations. Attention subsequently turned to underlining the importance of the ethical and social dimension of economic problems, in the light of the Encyclical 'Caritas in veritate'.

  "Having then recalled His Holiness' apostolic trip to Lourdes and Paris in 2008, and President Sarkozy's visit to the Vatican of the preceding year, the two men reiterated their joint desire to maintain permanent dialogue at various institutional levels, and to continue constructive collaboration on matters of mutual interest".
