Pope Francis on Wednesday afternoon, July 5, received former U.S. President Bill Clinton at the Casa Santa Marta. The Pontiff's meeting with the American politician was held in private and the topic discussed was peace. At the end of the meeting, Pope Francis looked out briefly to greet the security guards and other friends accompanying the former president on his trip to Rome and Europe, where he had meanwhile been taken on a tour of some of the Vatican's sites.
Mr. Clinton, who served as the 42nd president of the United States from January 1993 to January 2001, met with the Pope. The former president previously visited the Vatican on 2 June 1994, and was received by Pope John Paul II.
