Pope Francis has expressed great concerns and utmost worry over the tension between the United States and North Korea.
In a statement made during his recent visit to Egypt, where he disclosed the entire conflict if not curtailed could wipe out "large part of humanity."
He thus, called for renewed diplomacy using third-party intermediaries and for the United Nations to take a lead role in de-escalating tensions.
"the situation has heated up too much. I always appeal for a solution through diplomatic means. It's piecemeal but the pieces are getting larger, and are concentrated in places which were already hot.
Today a wider war would destroy, I won't say half of humanity, but a large part of humanity and culture. It would be terrible. I don't think humanity today could bear it.Diplomacy is the best response in these times" ,
