Pope challenges G20 leaders: focus on the real problems

Catholic World News - November 11, 2010

Pope Benedict XVI has issued a challenge to the leaders of the G20 nations to recognize “the deeper reasons for the economic and financial crisis.”

As the G20 leaders gather in Seoul, the Holy Father has issued a message to South Korean President Lee Myung-bak, expressing his hope that the meeting will produce policy decisions that promote “the authentic and integral development of man,” and “will not favor some countries at the expense of others.”

The Pope notes, in his letter to the Korean leader, that the location of this week’s meeting “clearly expresses the significance and responsibility which Asia has acquired on the international scene at the beginning of the 21st century.”
