While condemning all use of chemical weapons in Syria, the WCC general secretary said that “we must do everything possible to starve the fire of war rather than feeding it with further deadly armaments.”
In an open letter to the United Nations Security Council issued on 4 September, the Rev. Dr Olav Fykse Tveit expressed profound concern at the current situation in Syria. His message came following discussions with the church leaders in Amman, Jordan, where he is participating in a conference on “Challenges facing Arab Christians” on invitation of H.R.H. Prince Ghazi bin Muhammad.
