VATICAN CITY, SEP 30, 2004 (VIS) - "With pleasure I greet you, and those accompanying you, as you come to the Vatican, and I thank you for the kind sentiments you have expressed on behalf of the people of your nation," John Paul II told Pervez Musharraf, the president of Pakistan, during an audience this morning.

  "In these times of turmoil and violence," the Pope added, "I encourage you and your fellow citizens to continue to foster a spirit of dialogue and tolerance in your region. It is only by acknowledging the need for mutual understanding among peoples, through a frank and open exchange of ideas, that the world can obtain authentic justice and peace. Upon you and all the people of Pakistan I cordially invoke the abundant blessings of Almighty God."
