Pope, worried about Venezuela, urges dialogue

The first pope from South America says he is worried about Venezuela and is urging politicians there to work for reconciliation.



Vatican City: The first pope from South America says he is worried about Venezuela and is urging politicians there to use dialogue and work for reconciliation following the election after the long rule of the late Hugo Chavez.
Pope Francis told a crowd in St Peter`s Square on Sunday that he was closely following events, with concern and with hope that Venezuelans can find "the just and peaceful ways to overcome a moment of grave difficulty”.

Venezuela`s government says it will permit an audit of the razor-thin victory of the new Socialist President, Nicolas Maduro. The opposition insists he won by fraud.

Francis urged politicians to reject any kind of violence and establish dialogue.
