Pope tweets against Syria strike.
"To the leaders present, to each and every one, I make a heartfelt appeal for them to help find ways to overcome the conflicting positions and to lay aside the futile pursuit of a military solution," the Pope urged.
"Rather, let there be a renewed commitment to seek, with courage and determination, a peaceful solution through dialogue and negotiation of the parties, unanimously supported by the international community."
Pope Francis has sent a letter to Russian President Vladimir Putin urging him and other G20 leaders meeting in St.Petersburg to "lay aside the futile pursuit of a military solution" in Syria.
