Samson: The Pope calls for canceling the debts of the poorest countries
Pope Francis called today, Sunday, to “reduce” or “cancel” the debts of poor countries and alleviate the international sanctions imposed on some countries, calling for Europe’s solidarity in the face of the emerging Corona virus.
In his Easter message he read at St. Peter’s Basilica devoid of worshipers in the shadow of domestic stone, the Pope wished, “the easing of international sanctions that prevent the countries subject to them from providing adequate support to their citizens” and called for “international solidarity by reducing if not canceling debts” That weighs heavily on the budgets of the poorest countries.”
Pope Francis called for an “immediate and comprehensive” ceasefire in the ongoing conflicts in the world to confront the new outbreak of the Corona virus.
The Pope prayed that “those who bear responsibility in conflicts should have the courage to support the call for an immediate and comprehensive cease-fire all over the world.” LINK
