Vatican reaffirms path of dialogue and negotiation only option in Syria

(Terrasanctablog) Our partners at carried a story written by Edward Pentin entitled “MidEast Bishops Speak Out Against Western Military Strike on Syria”.   We read there a summary of the Vatican’s position on Syria.  It’s worth noting.

“Special attention was reserved for the tragic situation in which Syria finds itself,” a Vatican statement said. “In this regard, it was reaffirmed that the path of dialogue and negotiation between all components of Syrian society, with the support of the international community, is the only option to put an end to the conflict and to the violence that every day causes the loss of so many human lives, especially amongst the helpless civilian population.”
