.-  The Holy Father Benedict XVI received Armando Guebuza, the president of the Republic of Mozambique, in an audience at the Vatican today.

"The good relations existing between the Holy See and Mozambique were noted with pleasure, as was the convergence of ideas and intentions on the contribution the Church can make to the good of the entire nation, according to the Holy See’s Press Office.

The Pope and the president discussed further collaboration “in the field of healthcare, and education of the young generations who are the hope of the nation.” Benedict XVI also emphasized the Church’s commitment to strengthening and developing her presence in the university sector.

Mention was also made of the Rome Peace Agreement, the 15th anniversary of which was celebrated on October 4, and both parties agreed on “the need to achieve full national reconciliation.” “Finally the resumption of talks was proposed, with a view to an Agreement between the Holy See and the Republic of Mozambique."
