Italian prime minister meets with Pontiff

Catholic World News - July 04, 2013

Pope Francis met on July 4 with Italian Prime Minister Enrico Letta. It was their first official meeting.

A Vatican statement released after the discussion said that the conversation had centered on “social issues and the particular difficulties faced by citizens and institutions in Italy and in the European Union, especially in relation to the adoption of measures creating and protecting employment, in particular for the young.” The Pope and the Italian leader also discussed Church-state relations and international developments.
