REUTERS – Pope Francis welcomed the positive outcome of the inter-Korean summit that took place on Friday (April 27).

The pontiff, after his weekly address to the faithful, gathered in St. Peter’s Square, said that he accompanied with his prayer the courageous commitment taken by North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in to achieve a path of sincere dialogue for a Korean peninsula free from nuclear weapons.

He added that he will pray God so that the hope of a future of peace and fraternal friendship will not be disappointed and that collaboration may bring good fruits to the Korean people and the entire world.

Kim Jong Un and Moon Jae-in met on Friday (April 27) in the border village of Panmunjom and pledged there will be no more war on the Korean peninsula.

On Wednesday (April 25) the leader of the world’s 1.2 billion Catholics offered his prayers for the success of the inter-Korean summit and the support of the Holy See towards every initiative to build a better future in the Korean peninsula.
