Pope Francis says the United Nations is powerless to end the war in Ukraine.
The Pontiff said the UN’s constitution “doesn’t give the organisation that kind of power”.
Pope Francis made the comments in an interview in Spanish with Argentina’s national news agency Télam.
The Pope said while the UN was able to help prevent wars, it had “no power to assert its authority” over the Ukraine war and other conflicts around the world.
He also called for “courage and creativity” from international institutions.
He said both are needed to help resolve very serious conflicts.
