BEIRUT, December 12. /TASS/. Pope Francis has expressed "a deep sympathy for Syria and its people facing predicaments," the Syrian Arab News Agency (SANA) reported. The Pope’s message was handed over to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad by Apostolic Nuncio in Damascus, Archbishop Mario Zenari. The message particularly condemns "all forms of extremism and terrorism."
The Pope also called on all the parties "to double their efforts in order to end the armed conflict as soon as possible so that peace could be restored in Syria."
"Syria should once again set an example that different confessions and cultures can coexist peacefully," the Pope stressed.
