Pope Francis and President Barack Obama Jr. have recently continued to provide evidence that they both have a relatively high degree of intuition (see in lingua inglese; obtained on 12-20-2014). The Vatican released a statement days ago titled  “Comunicato della Segreteria di Stato, 17.12.2014” that indicated how both leaders were instrumental in establishing diplomatic relations between Cuba and the United States. The English translation is presented below:

“Communiqué of the Secretariat of State

The Holy Father wishes to express his warm congratulations for the historic decision taken by the Governments of the United States of America and Cuba to establish diplomatic relations, with the aim of overcoming, in the interest of the citizens of both countries, the difficulties which have marked their recent history.

In recent months, Pope Francis wrote letters to the President of the Republic of Cuba, His Excellency Mr Raúl Castro, and the President of the United States, The Honorable Barack H. Obama, and invited them to resolve humanitarian questions of common interest, including the situation of certain prisoners, in order to initiate a new phase in relations between the two Parties.

The Holy See received Delegations of the two countries in the Vatican last October and provided its good offices to facilitate a constructive dialogue on delicate matters, resulting in solutions acceptable to both Parties.

The Holy See will continue to assure its support for initiatives which both nations will undertake to strengthen their bilateral relations and promote the wellbeing of their respective citizens.

From the Vatican, 17th December 2014
