Pope's talk with hardline monk shades interfaith meeting

Vatican spokesman Greg Burke said the pope stressed "unity in diversity" in his private meeting with Myanmar's Buddhist, Hindu, Muslim, Christian and Jewish leaders which was a late addition to his official schedule. In the inter-faith meeting at the archbishop's residence in Yangon, Pope Francis told religious leaders to work together to rebuild the country and that if they argue, they should argue like brothers, who reconcile afterwards.
