Pope calls for ‘revival’ of Libyan peace efforts

Pope Benedict XVI urged the international community Sunday to “revive” their search for a peace plan for Libya, saying force was not the answer.

“I exhort the international organisations and those who bear political and military responsibility to revive with conviction and determination the search for a peace plan for the country, through negotiations and constructive dialogue,” the pontiff said in a weekly address to pilgrims at his summer residence in Castel Gandolfo, just outside Rome.

“Force of arms has not resolved the situation,” said the pope.
