During today's Vatican meeting between Pope Benedict XVI and President Mahinda Rajapaksa, they expressed the hope that a global joint solution may soon be found corresponding to the legitimate expectations of all the parties involved, in Sri Lanka

Issuing a communique the Holy See Press Office stated:

“This morning the Holy Father Benedict XVI received in audience Mahinda Rajapaksa, president of the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka. The president subsequently went on to meet with Archbishop Dominique Mamberti, secretary for Relations with States.

"During the cordial discussions the parties illustrated the steps taken to favour socio-economic development, and reconciliation among the communities hit by the long internal conflict which has affected the country. The hope was expressed that a global joint solution may soon be found corresponding to the legitimate expectations of all the parties involved.

"Finally, emphasis was given to how the Catholic Church - which makes an important contribution to the life of the country with her religious witness and educational, healthcare and social assistance activities - will continue to commit herself to the common good, reciprocal understanding and the integral development of all citizens".

    if the President of a country with 2/3rd majority and great popularity in the country and a loyal and strong defense force can only hope what chance there is for the rest

    Javi Saturday, 09 June 2012 07:49 AM

    Pope, hope more than years and years, finally nothing won't happen.

    kyle Saturday, 09 June 2012 07:38 AM

    Stupid comment. Shows your character when you insult the leader of the largest faith in the world. You should learn to be peaceful

    Idiotic comment

    shantha Saturday, 09 June 2012 07:06 AM

    Our president had gone to the feet of the biggest crook in the cosmos.

    Nodrog Saturday, 09 June 2012 06:24 AM

    And we hope you will tell the Int'l community not to interfere and let us find our own solutions

    Darshana Saturday, 09 June 2012 06:19 AM

    president has given a hope to the pope!

    kumar Friday, 08 June 2012 03:16 PM

    Early solution would be:

    01. Removal of 13th amendment
    02. Completely throwing LLC recommendations
    03. Colonization of North by the majority
    04. etc.

    ram UK Friday, 08 June 2012 02:40 PM

    Only early solution available is White Van. Lucky you you are in Vatican.

    alisten-us Friday, 08 June 2012 02:18 PM

    another Nasi

    DeSelva Friday, 08 June 2012 02:09 PM

    the President said he hopes to the Pope?
    ha ha

    lionheart Friday, 08 June 2012 01:49 PM

    "hope was expressed that a global joint solution may soon be found corresponding to the legitimate expectations of all the parties involved.”

    Why the Vatican uses the words GLOBAL and ALL PARTIES? It means we have to also bow to the west and also satisfy the expectations of the WEST. The people who issued this statement can go and fly a BIG KITE!

    Looking for help from the invisible hand.
