Share This






The vicar of the RomanCatholic faithfuls pope Francis has in his annual Christmas message,urged people to overcome their differences and find political solutions to conflicts, including those gripping the Middle Eastern region.

Speaking to 50,000-strong crowd at Saint Peter’s Square in Vatican City on Tuesday, the pope called for a spirit of “brotherhood” to be rekindled in conflict zones such as Syria, Yemen and Palestine.

“My wish for a happy Christmas is a wish for fraternity,” among individuals of “every nation and culture” as well as among people “with different ideas, yet capable of respecting and listening to one another,” the 82-year-old pontiff said.

The pope also said that differences should not be seen as a “detriment or a danger” but rather “a source of richness.”

“May the international community work decisively for a political solution that can put aside divisions and partisan interests, so that the Syrian people, especially all those who were forced to leave their own lands and seek refuge elsewhere, can return to live in peace in their own country,” the pope said.

“My thoughts turn to Yemen, in the hope that the truce brokered by the international community may finally bring relief to all those children and people exhausted by war and famine,” he added.

Speaking about other conflicting zones across the globe, Pope Francis further called for rapprochement on the Korean Peninsula, peace in Ukraine, “social harmony” in Venezuela, reconciliation in Nicaragua and an end to conflict in Africa, “where millions of people are refugees, or displaced or in need of humanitarian assistance and food security to the warring zones.”

The vicar was optimistic for a resumption of dialog between the Israelis and the Palestinians to “put an end to a conflict that for over 70 years has rent the land chosen by the Lord to show his face of love to all humanity .”

Mahmoud Abbas the palestinian President welcomed Pope Francis’ call for the resumption of talks with the Israelis.

He further affirmed the Palestinian side’s readiness to hold new discussions with the Tel Aviv regime on the basis of the international law and relevant United Nations General Assembly and Security Council resolutions hopefully Abbas Mahmoud will be looking forward to having a truce discussion with the Israelis.
