Pope calls for end to wars including Yemen and Syria
ABU DHABI, Feb 4, 2019 (BSS/AFP) – Pope Francis on Monday called for an end to the war in Yemen, where the UAE plays a key role, during the first visit by a pope to the Arabian Peninsula.
“Human fraternity requires of us, as representatives of the world’s religions, the duty to reject every nuance of approval from the word war. I am thinking in particular of Yemen, Syria, Iraq and Libya,” the pope said during an interfaith meeting in Abu Dhabi attended by Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayeb, the world’s top Sunni Muslim cleric.
