CWN Editor's Note: The Vatican Secretary of State has observed that an international peace conference, aimed to bring peace to Ukraine, was handicapped by the absence of Russian representatives.

Cardinal Pietro Parolin said that the conference held in Switzerland was “useful,” but lamented “the limitation, noted by many of the participants, of not having Russia’s presence.” He remarked: “Peace is always made together.”

The cardinal went on to tell reporters that international peacekeeping efforts today are made difficult because of “the absolute lack of mutual trust” and the reality that “international organizations work little or not at all.”
