He said yesterday. “But after many years of reflection and despair over the senseless cruelty and destruction we are witnessing around the world, my own conclusion is that only reconciliation provides assurance that our children and grandchildren will not suffer the same agony as our generation . ” Also Read – Britain’s Prince William signed Covid-19 in April so as not to alarm the country
