President His Highness Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan received yesterday a letter from Pope John Paul II concerning bilateral relations between the UAE and Vatican. The letter was delivered to Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, by Bishop Bernardo Giovanni Gremoli, the Vatican's representative in the Arabian Peninsula, in the presence of Italian ambassador. Sheikh Hamdan also received a picture of the St. Peter's Basilica from Pope John Paul II to Sheikh Zayed.
