As Secretary-General of the United Nations, it is my duty to appeal to full compliance with the Charter of the United Nations, which is fundamental to international law. “
Likewise, the Secretary of State Beccari shares the strong call for peace, ceaselessly invoked by Pope Francis, who never tires of raising his voice towards the assumption of an appeal of full “responsibility for peace”, defining war as madness and asking those responsible to put forward the interest common to that of the Parties.
