Pope Francis calls for Korea's leaders to be 'artisans of peace'

April 25 (UPI) — Pope Francis called on his followers to pray for North and South Korea on Wednesday and said the upcoming inter-Korea summit is a good opportunity for reconciliation and the restoration of brotherly love.

The Pope made the statement before his weekly general audience on Wednesday, where he also called on the leaders of the two Koreas to be “artisans of peace.”

The summit is a “favorable occasion to start a transparent dialogue and a concrete route toward reconciliation and regained brotherhood with the aim of guaranteeing peace on the Korean Peninsula and in the entire world,”
