Nuncio backs UN plan for Syria

Catholic World News - March 23, 2012

The apostolic nuncio to Syria has express his “full support” for a unanimous UN Security Council resolution on the Syrian crisis. The resolution calls for a cease fire, negotiations between the government and rebels, and humanitarian aid.

“It is urgent to pray for all victims of the conflict,” Archbishop Mario Zenari added. “It is urgent to mark a turning point at a humanitarian level: too many people are suffering and, in areas such as Homs, it is even impossible to carry out works of mercy such as burying the dead … In this hell there are some angels, the few remaining priests who comfort and help the population that suffers.”
