Pope notes steps toward democracy, religious freedom in Mongolia

Catholic World News - May 20, 2010

As he met on May 20 with a new ambassador from Mongolia to the Holy See, Pope Benedict XVI voiced his appreciation for "the constant support of the government in ensuring religious liberty." The Pope told the new envoy, Luvsantseren Orgil, that he remained concerned about the victims of devastating floods in Mongolia last winter. He expressed hope that the democratic government-- now marking its 20h anniversary-- would continue with "the consolidation of a social order which promotes the common good of your citizens."
