Mexican president visits Pontiff
Catholic World News - June 09, 2014
Pope Francis met on June 7 with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, who assumed office in 2012.
The “cordial discussions,” according to the Holy See Press Office, focused on “numerous recent reforms” in Mexico, “in particular the constitutional amendments regarding religious freedom.” The two also discussed migration, poverty, unemployment, and efforts against violence and drug trafficking.
Peña Nieto then met with Cardinal Pietro Parolin, the Vatican’s Secretary of State, and Archbishop Dominique Mamberti, the Secretary for Relations with States.
