Pope urges ‘greater opening’ by Iran

Pope Benedict XVI on Thursday urged a “greater opening” by Iran to the international community as he met Tehran’s new ambassador to the Vatican.

“Iran is a great nation… and its people have a deep religious sensibility,” the pope said as he accepted Ali Akbar Naseri’s credentials.

“That may be a reason to hope for a greater opening and confident collaboration with the international community,” he said as a long-running stand-off over Iran’s nuclear programme appeared inching towards a resolution.

“We must all hope and support a new phase of international cooperation,” said the head of the Roman Catholic Church.
