La Paz, Bolivia, Nov 28, 2004 / 22:00 pm
The Apostolic Nuncio to Bolivia, Archbishop Ivo Scapolo, said this week the current social crisis facing the country can only be overcome by a frank dialogue between all parties of the conflict.
Bolivia is currently in a political crisis, made worse by conflicts between various labor sectors and by regional demands.
Archbishop Scapolo recalled the messages sent by Pope John Paul II, who said, “The solution to problems is not in violence, nor in confrontation, but above all in dialogue, harmony, and unity among the Bolivian people.”
The archbishop stated that dialogue should always be accompanied by respect for human rights and justice.
