Francis ‘happy’ for US-Cuba rapprochement

Pope Francis, who played a key role in the breakthrough in US-Cuban relations –as presidents Barack Obama and Raúl Castro highlighted-, expressed his joy for the historic rapprochement after 53 years of hostility.

“Today we are all happy because yesterday we saw two nations, who were estranged for so many years, take a step to bring them closer together,” he said to non-resident Ambassadors to the Holy See today.

He pointed out that the historic talks were the result of diplomacy, which he described as “taking small steps, doing small things (…) to build peace, to bring the hearts of people closer together and sow brotherhood between peoples.”

Yesterday, Pope Francis expressed “his warm congratulations” to the US and Cuba in an official statement in which he offered the Holy See’s good offices “to facilitate a constructive dialogue on delicate matters, resulting in solutions acceptable to both parties.”
