As U.S. troops consolidated their control over the Iraqi capital, the Vatican offered "concrete proposals" to the United States on how church groups can help distribute humanitarian aid in the war-scarred country, a U.S. official said. Speaking after meetings with Vatican officials on April 9, John R. Bolton, the U.S. under secretary for arms control and international security, said he planned to convey the Vatican's "constructive and helpful" proposals to Washington immediately for transmission to field commanders in Iraq.
