Vatican envoy encourages Arab League action to stem violence in Syria

Catholic World News - April 02, 2012

Citing “a most alarming increase in violence, with an indiscriminate use of force,” the Vatican’s representative to the Arab League has called for international action to stem the violence in Syria.

Archbishop Michael Fitzgerald noted the “loss of lives among civilians and considerable damage to property” due to the continued fighting in Syria. He said that humanitarian aid is urgently needed, and announced that the Holy See is sending a substantial donation to help those afflicted.

The archbishop said that the effective intervention by the Arab League should seek to “satisfy the legitimate aspirations of the different members of the nation.”
