Pope tells Asia's communist nations not to fear Christians

HAEMI South Korea (Reuters) - Pope Francis, in remarks clearly intended for communist-ruled countries such as China, North Korea and Vietnam, said on Sunday that Asian governments should not fear Christians as they did not want to "come as conquerors" but be integral parts of local cultures. Francis made his comments, some of them unscripted, in an address to about 70 bishops from 35 Asian countries gathered in the town of Haeme, south of Seoul, on the next-to-last day of his trip to South Korea. He told them the Church was committed to dialogue with everyone, saying: "In this spirit of openness to others, I earnestly hope that those countries of your continent with whom the Holy See does not yet enjoy a full relationship, may not hesitate to further a dialogue for the benefit of all." Francis then added, in unscripted remarks, that he was talking of "not just political dialogue but also fraternal". #United States #India #China #Business #Brazil #France #South Korea #North Korea #Latin America #Mexico #chinese #opinion

In North Korea, a church renovated, missionaries jailed

SEOUL (Reuters) - Tucked between trees and paddy fields in a quiet suburb in the west of Pyongyang, Chilgol Church is one of four state-operated churches in the capital of a country that espouses freedom of religion but effectively bans it. In recent months, the Protestant church has been renovated - its rusted iron roof replaced with new tiles, and its faded brown brick walls repainted yellow, according to a North Korean propaganda video. #India #Business #Brazil #Arabic #Russia #markets #North Korea #Argentina #United Kingdom #Mexico
