Maya (in clubhouse of Shanghai Grand Plaza apt complex)


Is the Vatican’s ‘foreign policy’ changing and is it adopting a more forward-looking stance? Rome is certainly not standing on the sidelines: helping with the rapprochement between the US and Cuba, and with Pope Francis meeting Iran’s President Rouhani and the Patriarch of the Russian Orthodox Church. Join Francesco Sisci, who recently interviewed the Pope, as he discusses the Vatican’s foreign policy, its attitude towards China and its bigger role in international politics.

Francesco Sisci was the first foreigner ever admitted to the Graduate School of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, in 1988, and has worked as a journalist, commentator and academic focused on China for more than twenty years.
