Bush and Pope discuss Iraq and moral issues

Text size Aa Aa

US President George W Bush’s trip to the Vatican was his first encounter with Pope Benedict XVI. The pair were scheduled to have a half hour meeting. Analysts expected the talks to centre on their differences on Iraq and their common stand against some ethical issues.

They both oppose abortion and euthanasia but are divided over the war in Iraq, which Benedict’s predecessor, John Paul II, tried hard to avert.
