Cardinal Bo appeals to Burmese to make 2017 the Year of Peace

Myanmar’s Cardinal, Charles Maung Bo, has issued an appeal to all religions and all ethnic groups in the nation to make 2017 the Year of Peace.

The Archbishop of Yangon’s plea comes as the UN and other human rights groups are accusing Myanmar’s military of committing grave atrocities against Burma's minority Rohingya Muslims.

In Cardinal Bo’s appeal, which was sent to Fides News Agency, he says: "It is time to join - all religions, all ethnic groups - to truly make 2017 the Year of Peace. Peace is possible through justice. Peace is possible through negotiations. We urge all religions to observe the day of 1 January 2017 as a day of fasting and prayer for peace."
