Eastern patriarchs call upon international community to save Iraq

Catholic World News - July 02, 2014

Three Eastern Catholic patriarchs, joined by two Orthodox counterparts, met in Lebanon on July 1 and issued a statement urging “the world to prevent Iraq’s disintegration and save its people from the scourge of a devastating war,” the Beirut-based Daily Star reported.

The patriarchs also “called upon the international community to preserve Iraq’s civilizations, including the deep-rooted Christian civilization, and encouraged their sons to cling on to their land and not give it up under the pressures of current conditions,” according to the statement.
