Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has sent Pope Francis a private message, the Vatican said on Saturday, without disclosing its contents.

The Vatican said a delegation headed by Syrian minister of state "Joseph Sweid" , held talks in the Vatican with the pope's secretary of state, Archbishop "Pietro Parolin" and his foreign minister, Archbishop Dominique Mamberti.

The statement said that "the delegation brought a message from President Assad for the Holy Father and illustrated the position of the Syrian government".

Pope Francis has made numerous appeals for an end to the civil war in Syria, the latest on Christmas Day.
