Biden Calls Pope's Iraq Visit Symbol Of Hope For World

President says Iraq 'home to one of the oldest and most diverse Christian communities in the world'

US President Joe Biden on Monday called Pope Francis's visit to Iraq a symbol of hope for the entire world, according to a White House statement.
"Pope Francis' visit was a historic and welcome first for the country. It sent an important message, as Pope Francis said himself, that 'fraternity is more durable than fratricide, that hope is more powerful than death, that peace more powerful than war'," Biden said.
The president called Iraq as "home to one of the oldest and most diverse Christian communities in the world."
"To see Pope Francis visit ancient religious sites, including the biblical birthplace of Abraham, spend time with Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani in Najaf, and offer prayers in Mosul — a city that only a few years ago endured the depravity and intolerance of a group like ISIS — is a symbol of hope for the entire world," he added.
Biden congratulated the government and people of Iraq for planning the Pope's visit, and said he continues to admire Pope Francis for his commitment to promoting religious tolerance, the common bonds of humanity, and interfaith understanding.
Pope Francis landed in Iraq on Friday, which marked the first time a papal visit to the country in history. -
