On 12 March 2012, Bishop Kevin Dowling and Marie Dennis, Co-Presidents of Pax Christi International, have written a letter addressed to H.E. Sergey Lavrov, Minister of Foreign Affairs on the critical situation in Syria and the mediation role of the Russian government. The letter is (1) in support of the mediation efforts of Mr Kofi Annan; (2) humanitarian and medical teams urgently need to be granted safe access; and (3) Russia should stop all arms supplies to Syria.
All member organisations of Pax Christi International are invited to write similar letters of concern to the Russian Embassy in their country. Read a copy of the letter by clicking here.
