Pope Francis calls for dialogue and cooperation to end Ukraine crisis

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Pope Francis on Sunday (March 2) made a "heartfelt" appeal to resolve the Ukraine crisis through dialogue and co-operation. Addressing huge crowds gathered in rainy Vatican, the pope, who on Friday (February 28) cancelled a local visit due to "slight fever," asked the faithful to pray for Ukraine. "I ask you to keep praying for Ukraine, which is living through a very delicate situation, while I hope that all the different parts of the country work together to overcome misunderstandings and together work towards building a future for the country. I extend a heartfelt appeal to the international community to support any initiatives in favour of dialogue and peace," Pope Francis said.
