Chile, Vatican in accord on culture-of-life issues

Catholic World News - December 13, 2011

During a visit this week to Chile, the Vatican’s Secretary for Relations with States has been speaking with government officials about the defense of human life and family, the Vatican announced in a December 13 news release.

Archbishop Dominique Mamberti has met with the top officials of the Chilean government and parliament, and remarked on the “excellent state of bilateral relations” between the Latin American country and the Holy See. The Vatican noted that in his talks with various political leaders:

Questions of mutual interest include the defense of life from conception to natural demise, and of the family; respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms, including freedom of religion and education; adherence to the principles of international law; the protection of the environment, and support for integral development and social peace. In all of these matters, the views of the Holy See and the government of Chile converged on the fundamental values of human coexistence.
