ROME (Reuters) – Vatican Secretary of State Cardinal Pietro Parolin said on Wednesday that a controversial deal with Beijing on the appointment of Roman Catholic bishops in China would be renewed.

The deal, which was first signed two years ago and expires on Thursday, will be renewed for another two years, he said.

Asked by reporters if it was a done deal, Parolin said “Yes, I can anticipate to you that all will go well.”
