Pope Francis, in an address entitled "To the City and Peace" (Urbi et Orbi), called for the pursuit of world peace, Azernews reports.

The pontiff, addressing the faithful in St. Peter's Square, called for a "yes" to peace and a "no" to wars. He also urged people to say "no" to weapons. He said peace is more difficult to achieve when "the production and sale of arms are on the rise."

"May the day of final peace between Armenia and Azerbaijan draw near. May the continuation of humanitarian initiatives, the return of refugees to their homes legally and safely, and mutual respect for the religious traditions and places of worship of each community contribute to this," the pontiff said.
