LONDON: War is not the solution for problems in state affairs of nations or International arguments; peace should be reinstated through discussions for peace, said The Catholicos of the East HH. Baselios Marthoma Paulose II, the supreme head of the Indian Orthodox Church.
It is urgently needed that the U. N. to investigate truthfully and impartially about who is responsible for killing the innocent citizens in Syria using chemical weapons. America should also avoid single handedly taking a decision to interfere and attack into the state affairs of Syria by ignoring the opinions of majority of the nations including India.
The Catholicos also instructed that the U. N. and the World Council of Churches should cooperate and work together in solving the situations; including the current situation of Antioch and Alexandria, two ancient Christian cultural centers being destroyed which should not be allowed.
The International community should put pressure to find ways for freeing the Bishops of the Syrian Orthodox Church Gregorios Yuhanna Ibrahim and the Greek Orthodox Church Boulos Yazigi who were abducted by rebels in April.
The Catholicos at a public meeting arranged by the christian communities in London, called upon the faithful, to pray earnestlly and wholeheartedly for restoring peace in disturbed regions such as Egypt and Syria where riots are going on.
