Pope Appeals for Dialogue in Nile River Dispute

Pope Francis said after the recitation of the Angelus on Saturday that he is “following with particular attention the situation of the difficult negotiations regarding the Nile between Egypt, Ethiopia and Sudan.”

He urged all parties to “continue on the path of dialogue so that the Eternal River might continue to be a source of life”, uniting, not dividing, nourishing friendship and not hostility or conflict.

“Let dialogue”, he ended the appeal “be your only choice, for the good of your dear populations and of the entire world.”
