BEIJING (Reuters) - China has made real efforts toward establishing relations with the Vatican, a Chinese religious affairs official said on Tuesday.
Chen Zongrong, who was vice-administrator of the State Administration for Religious Affairs until the government combined it with another agency in a recent restructuring, made the comment at a news briefing.
Xiao Hong, a former spokeswoman of the agency, said China was actively pursuing talks with the Vatican.
