Pope Francis compared Catalonia to Kosovo

There are countries in Europe that are still in the process of independence today, look at Kosovo and all that area that is being rebuilt, the pope said

In an interview given to the Spanish radio station, Pope Francis, talking about the situation in Catalonia after the referendum, made a comparison with Kosovo.

There have been many cases of independence in history. There are countries in Europe that are still in the process of independence today, look at Kosovo and all that area that is being rebuilt – said the Pope, adding that “these are historical events that are characterized by a number of peculiarities.”

The pope then referred to the specific case of Spain to point out that the Spaniards themselves “must judge”, but said that the most important thing at the moment in any country that has this kind of problem is to ask them if they have come to terms with their own history. “, Reports Kosovo online.

I don’t know if Spain has completely reconciled with its own history, especially the history of the last century – said the Pope, who added that if not, he must take a step of reconciliation with his history, which does not mean giving up his own views, but entering a process of dialogue and reconciliation.

At this point, however, Pope Francis has called for an “escape from ideologies” that, in his view, are hampering any process of reconciliation, but rather “destroying ideologies.”

The pope also referred to the concept of “national unity”, which he described as a “fascinating term”, but warned that “it will never be valued without a basic reconciliation of the people”.

Every government, regardless of its sign, must take responsibility for reconciliation – concluded Pope Francis.
