In an address Sunday, Pope Francis asked that people pray for the peace and safety of the country’s citizens.

“I join in the unanimous concern for the situation in Afghanistan," the pontiff said during his address, according to Reuters. 

"I ask all of you to pray with me to the God of peace, so that the clamour of weapons might cease and solutions can be found at the table of dialogue."

"Only this way can the martyred population of that country — men, women, elderly and children — return to their homes and live in peace and security in full reciprocal respect," he added.
