“Abandoning the war scheme and assuming the peace scheme means strengthening participation in international organizations and also rediscovering a greater capacity for European initiative. The one underway in Ukraine is a tremendous war in the heart of Europe and Christian Europe. Not I enter into the merits of the decisions that the countries have taken to send arms to Ukraine, which as a nation has the right to defend itself from the invasion it has suffered. The Vatican secretary of state, card. Pietro Parolin for whom it is necessary “to arrive at a negotiated solution”.
“Weapons are a weak response, not a strong response!” Parolin said. “A strong response is a response that undertakes, trying to involve everyone, initiatives according to the peace scheme, that is, initiatives to stop the fighting, to arrive at a negotiated solution, to think about the possible future of coexistence in our Old Continent, “he added.
A negotiation is possible only “without preconditions”, “mine is a wish that the rigidities are abandoned and that flexibility is shown that alone can lead to negotiating a just, lasting, resistant peace. Rigid preconditions cannot lead to any conclusion, I hope there is a desire for this flexibility, Parolin said, answering the question of how he sees the prospects of the Russian-Ukrainian conflict. Parolin said he was “pessimistic” about the negotiation, reiterating that however “we must insist on this otherwise the war will continue to devour the children of Ukraine “.
“As M5s we are absolutely opposed to a military escalation because it would mean further suffering and carnage. Therefore we are opposed to increasingly lethal weapons. It is not a question of the type of weaponry but of the political direction: whether it is to defend oneself or to counterattack . To be clear, we are opposed to ever more lethal and heavier weapons: we don’t want to send tanks “. Thus the M5s leader Giuseppe Conte on the sidelines of a Uil conference.
