Milan, February 11 - Outgoing Premier Mario Monti
said Monday he was shocked by Pope Benedict XVI's unexpected
decision to resign at the end of the month.
"I am very shocked by this unexpected news," Monti said.
Monti said he had no "signs or hints" of the impending
decision during recent meetings.
The pope said because of his advanced age and diminishing
strength he would leave the papacy at 19:00 GMT on February 28.
Monti, a practising Catholic with ties to the Vatican, met
Benedict several times during his 13-month stint as premier
which ended in December.
