Pope Francis on Friday in Bahrain appealed to religious leaders to help bring the world back from “the brink of a delicate precipice” and oppose a new race to rearmament, which he said was redesigning Cold War-era spheres of influence. He appealed to the conscience of religious leaders to promote world peace, disarmament and social justice.
In continuation of the pontiff policy to enhance ties with the Islamic world, he broke the record of been the first pope to visit Abu Dhabi in the Arabian peninsula and other Muslim state since his emergence in 2013.
Pope Francis spoke intensively against terrorism financing, while condemning death penalty in Bahrain, where the Shi’ite Muslim opposition accused the Sunni monarchy of supervising human rights abuse.
During the full day Bahrain forum on East-West dialogue promoted by the King of the Gulf country, King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa called for unanimity in stopping the war between Russia and Ukraine, and a “serious dialogue for the good of all humanity.”Follow us on social media
