Pope Francis on March 29, 2020, joined the call for a global ceasefire amid the coronavirus pandemic, stressing the need for constructive dialogue in the search for peace.

His remarks came after praying the noonday Angelus from the Library of the Apostolic Vatican Palace.

“In the past days, the UN Secretary-General launched an appeal to ‘cease the global and immediate fire in all corners of the world,’ recalling the present COVID-19 emergency, which knows no borders – an appeal to total cease-fire,” the Pope said. “I join all those that have listened to this appeal and I invite all to follow it up, halting all forms of warlike hostility, fostering the creation of corridors for humanitarian aid, openness to diplomacy and attention to those that find themselves in a situation of greatest vulnerability.
