Vatican City, Mar 27 (EFE).- Pope Francis and U.S. President Barack Obama met for 50 minutes on Thursday at the Vatican.
The meeting lasted more than the 30 minutes that most of the pope's conversations with heads of state and government run.
The pontiff and the U.S. leader exchanged presents and introduced their delegations.
Obama met with Vatican Secretary of State Pietro Parolin, who had a long meeting at the Vatican with his U.S. counterpart, John Kerry, in January.
Kerry also participated in Thursday's meeting at the Vatican.
