U.S Secretary John Kerry thinks Pope can intervene in Middle East peace process

2014-01-14

Msgr. Pietro Parolin welcomed U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry for a very brief meeting at the Vatican.


Now, I'm headed to Kuwait to do a major conference for Syrian refugees.

The short visit underscores the pivotal role Pope Francis has gained in international affairs since taking office.

 

John Kerry made the pit stop in Rome to discuss the peace process between Israel and Palestine. In the past months, he pushed for negotiations, but with no success so far.

 


Thank you so much for arranging this, and thank you so much for doing this on s

hort notice.


With Pope Francis visiting the Holy Land in May, the United States sees the Pope as a key ally in pushing both sides to the negotiating table.

 

The meeting lasted an hour and forty minutes. Both two secretaries also talked about Syria, South Sudan, and the healthcare reform in the U.S., a big sticking point between the government and American bishops.

Before saying goodbye, Kerry introduced some of his staff. His assistant secretary of state had special words for Msgr. Parolin about the Pope.

 

 I would like to say that Pope Francis is exciting for non-Catholics as well.


That is very good news. Thank you.
