CWN Editor's Note: On September 14, Mao Ning, the deputy director of China’s Foreign Ministry Information Department, was asked, “Pope Francis of the Roman Catholic Church said yesterday when he arrived in Kazakhstan that he was willing to go to China at any time. Does China consider having talks with the Pope?”
