Pope urges mediation to end North Korea crisis and avert 'terrible' war

Baku, April 30, AZERTAC

Pope Francis said on Saturday a third country, such as Norway, should try to mediate in the dispute between North Korea and Washington, to cool a situation that had become "too hot" and posed the risk of nuclear devastation.

According to the Telegraph, Francis said he believed "a good part of humanity" would be destroyed in any widespread war.

Speaking to reporters aboard the plane taking him back from Cairo, Francis also said he was ready to meet US President Donald Trump when he is in Europe next month but that he was not aware that Washington had made a request for a meeting.
