CWN Editor's Note: Chaldean Catholic Patriarch Louis Sako has said that a “poorly prepared visit” to Iraq by French President Emmanuel Macron could “risk fueling misunderstandings.” He observed that on a trip to Mosul, Macron met mostly with Europeans, “and even the Iraqi bishops present seemed to be guests.” Cardinal Sako said that Iraqi Christians should not “put their trust in Western politics,” and the visits by European leaders cause resentment among their Muslim neighbors.
