Vatican views pact in ‘positive light’

The Vatican welcomes the agreement on Iran’s nuclear program and expressed hope that the progress would extend to other areas, AP reports.

Vatican spokesman the Rev. Federico Lombardi told journalists the agreement “is viewed in a positive light by the Holy See” and noted that continued efforts “on the part of all involved will be necessary in order for it to bear fruit.”

Lombardi said that “it is hoped that those fruits will not be limited” to the nuclear program alone.
