President Bashar al-Assad on Monday received a letter from His Holiness Pope Francis, delivered by Cardinal Peter Turkson, Prefect of the Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development.

In his letter, the Pope reiterated his support for restoring stability in Syria and ending the suffering of the Syrian people caused by war.

During his conversation with Cardinal Turkson, President Assad focused on the current situation in northern Syria, particularly in the Idlib Governorate.

The talks also touched on political efforts and how to support them, with President Assad stressing that the most important thing that can be done to help the Syrian people is pressuring the states which support terrorists, seek to prolong the war, and impose sanctions on the Syrian people, so that these states would change this approach and move towards bolstering peace and stability instead.

“Prince”. You’ve almost touch the point ! The position of this Pope and the Vatican is a complete disgrace, specially for Cristian Catholics… If, if, I’ve had the opportunity to talk, face to face, to this Pope I’ll put him the same question Apostol Paul told he was asked : «Saul, Saul, why do you persecute Me ?!
