Pope Francis Called to End Violence in Syria

During the Christmas message Pope Francis called on the international community to bring an end to the fighting in Syria.

“It is time for weapons to be still forever, and the international community to actively seek a negotiated solution,” he said, while speaking in front of 40 thousand faithful gathered in St. Peter’s Square at the Vatican.

Pope Francis emphasized, that far too much blood has been spilled in Syria, especially in Aleppo, which in recent weeks has become the scene of the most brutal fighting. He also wished peace to those who had lost loved ones because of acts of terrorism all over the world.
