Vatican City, November 9 - Pope Benedict XVI told
an assembly of Interpol delegates on Friday that the Catholic
Church supports efforts to fight terrorism and mafia syndicates.
"The Church and the Holy See encourage all those who help
to combat the scourge of violence and crime, as our world
resembles more and more a global village," the pope told the
delegates on the final day of the General Assembly of Interpol
in Rome.
"The gravest forms of criminal activities can be seen in
terrorism and organized crime. Terrorism, one of the most brutal
forms of violence, sows hate, death and a desire for revenge".
The German pontiff also called for greater international
cooperation to fight crime.
"It is important to strengthen collaboration and the
exchange of expertise at a time when, at a global level, we see
a widening of the sources of violence provoked by transnational
entities which hinder the progress of humanity," he said.
"Among these we include the evolution of criminal violence
which is a particularly troubling aspect for the future of the
world".
The General Assembly of Interpol brought together
representatives of police and security agencies, and political
and institutional figures from its 190 member states, which
since 2008 have included the Vatican City State.
