(ANSA) – VATICAN CITY, 03 JUL – “The Ukrainian crisis should have been, but if you want it can still become, a challenge for wise statesmen capable of building a better world in dialogue for the new generations”. The Pope said this at the Angelus. “With God’s help this is always possible but we must pass from political, economic and military power strategies to a global peace project. No to a world divided between conflicting powers, yes to a united world between peoples and civilizations that they respect each other “, underlined the Pope.
“We continue to pray for peace in Ukraine and in the whole world. I appeal to the heads of nations and international organizations to react to the tendency to accentuate conflict and opposition. The world needs peace: not a peace based on balance of armaments, on mutual fear, no, this is not right. This means to turn history back seventy years “, added Pope Francis. (HANDLE).
