VATICAN CITY: Syrian President Bashar al-Assad sent a message to Pope Francis on Saturday (Sunday in Manila), that state media said expressed his determination to defend Syrians of all religions against hardline Islamists among the rebels. The message was passed on through a Syrian government delegation that held talks at the Vatican with the pontiff’s Secretary of State Pietro Parolin and foreign affairs official Dominique Mamberti.
