Pope meets Seychelles president

Pope Benedict XVI discussed education, youth and environmental protection Monday with Seychelles President James Michel, the Vatican said.

The two spoke about "engagement and cooperation in the framework of promoting human dignity, particularly in the areas with great social importance like family, youth education or protecting the environment," the Holy See said in a statement.

Following his meeting with the pontiff, Michel met with Vatican number two Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone and Foreign Minister Dominique Mamberti.
