“Everyone aware of the horrors of war would agree that that retaliation and revenge in never the right response – once started, it rarely ends. Millions of people are suffering today of existing wars – we don’t need another. Our world cannot even care for all the people currently in peril”
“I ask the Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan and the Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi to show true leadership in this difficult time: to sit down, shake hands and settle the current conflict and long-standing issue of Kashmir through dialogue. I ask the international community to support talks between India and Pakistan and to help prevent loss of lives and homes”
“Citizens of both countries know that true enemies are terrorism, poverty, illiteracy and health crisis - not each other."
