Rome, Sept. 30 (Reuters) - the Vatican said on Wednesday it had rejected a request by U.S. Secretary of state pompeio to meet Pope Francis. It also accused the Secretary of state of trying to drag the Vatican into the US presidential election by condemning the Catholic Churchs relationship with China.
According to the report, pompeio in an article and a series of tweets accused the Vatican of endangering its moral authority by renewing the agreement on the appointment of bishops with China. Subsequently, two senior Vatican officials made extraordinary remarks.
Two senior Vatican officials, Secretary of state petro parolin and Foreign Minister Paul Gallagher, said Francis refused pompeios request for an audience because the Pope avoided meeting politicians before the election, the report said.
Yes, he asked for an audience, parolin said. But the Pope has made it clear that politicians will not be received during the election. Thats why.
Both parolin and Gallagher said pompeios public criticism on the eve of his planned visit was surprising..
Asked if he thought pompeios criticism of the Vatican agreement was for political purposes, parolin said: it has been interpreted in this way These comments are first and foremost for domestic political purposes. I dont have any evidence of this, but its certainly a way of looking at it. Parolin said the Vatican China Agreement has nothing to do with American politics.. This is a matter between churches and should not be used for such purposes. .
