Pope Urges Negotiation for Ukraine-Russia Conflict Resolution

In a recent interview with Swiss broadcaster RSI, Pope Francis called for Ukraine to have the courage to engage in peace talks with Russia to end the ongoing conflict. Emphasizing the importance of negotiation and the involvement of international powers, the pontiff suggested that a willingness to negotiate does not equate to surrender.

This statement comes amidst Ukraine’s reluctance to engage directly with Russia on peace negotiations, with President Volodymyr Zelenskyy insisting that the initiative must belong to the invaded nation.

However, the Pope’s use of the term “white flag” in reference to negotiation sparked criticism, with Vatican spokesman Matteo Bruni clarifying that Francis was echoing the interviewer’s terminology and reiterating the Pope’s commitment to diplomatic neutrality. Despite maintaining neutrality, the Pope’s remarks have sometimes been interpreted as sympathetic to the Russian perspective, particularly regarding NATO’s expansion towards Russia’s borders.

Acknowledging the offers from various countries to mediate, including Turkey’s proposal to host a peace summit between Ukraine and Russia, Pope Francis stressed the importance of not waiting until situations deteriorate further before engaging in negotiations.

As Ukraine faces mounting challenges and dwindling resources, the Pope’s call for courage in pursuing negotiations underscores the urgency of finding a peaceful resolution to the conflict.
