Pope calls for end to Iran crisis
Pope Benedict XVI has called for a negotiated solution to the Iran nuclear crisis, in his traditional Easter message in St Peter’s Square in Rome.
“May an honourable solution be found for all parties, through honest and serious negotiations,” he said.
He also affirmed Israel’s “just right to exist in peace” while calling on the international community to help the Palestinians move towards statehood.
It is Pope Benedict XVI’s first Easter as pontiff.
His Easter message – “Urbi et Orbi” – was broadcast live on television to more than 50 countries, while about 100,000 people gathered in the square.
