Pope joins UN chief in call for global ceasefire

Mar 29, 2020 19:38 IST

Pope Francis on Sunday backed the UN secretary general's call for a cease-fire in all conflicts across the globe to help slow the spread of the coronavirus. Francis spoke during his traditional Sunday blessing. He cited UN chief Antonio Guterres' appeal this week for a global truce 'to focus together on the true fight of our lives' against the virus. He also cited the virus risks posed to inmates, and said his thoughts are with those unable to self-isolate, citing in particular those in elderly homes, and military barracks.
