Arinze attacks Western policy

A NIGERIAN cardinal, who has been tipped as a future Pope, says the West must not impose population control policies on Africa.

Cardinal Francis Arinze, prefect of the Vatican Congregation for Divine Worship, told the Italian bishops' conference, that in view of the impending meeting on Africa and the European Union: Companions in Solidarity, Europe must "be careful not to impose demographic policies on African families, suggesting for example, that they have not more than two children".

He expressed concern about the influx of weapons in countries that were extremely poor and lacking in food.

He said: "Europe, and also North America, should question themselves on this point. A country is not helped bs selling weapons to it.

"European countries should ask themselves some ethical questions and not just think of commercial interests."
