The Holy See has expressed its concern about a “worrying exodus” of Christians from Middle East countries which have been their homelands for nearly two thousand years. The Holy See’s Permanent Observer to the United Nations in New York, Archbishop Francis Chullikatt, said Christians often targeted by “fundamentalist and extremist forces” in the region.
He was speaking during the UN Security Council Open Debate on ‘The situation in the Middle East, including the Palestinian question.’
“The Holy See stands ready to support all religious communities in their efforts to reach new understandings and the restoration of trust after these years of violence, revenge and recrimination.,” Archbishop Chullikatt said.
