Vatican accepted as member of Interpol

ST. PETERSBURG, October 7 (RIA Novosti) - The Vatican was accepted into Interpol after the unanimous approval of its membership by the organization's supreme governing body on Tuesday.
The Holy See became the 187th member of the International Criminal Police Organization (Interpol) at the police force's 77th General Assembly, which kicked off in St. Petersburg, Russia through October 10.
Interpol's Acting President Arturo Herrera Verdugo handed an Interpol flag to a Vatican representative.
The Vatican representative said the world's smallest independent state was joining Interpol because it shared the organization's views on dealing with global challenges.
