Among the topics of the conversation - according to reports - the need to keep alive the hope of peace, clearly expressed during the first World Children's Day, considering the military escalation on a global level, from Ukraine to the Holy Land to the many conflicts plaguing Africa.
Also on the agenda was the issue of immigration, with particular concern for the too many deaths at sea and in the desert that continue to be recorded. There was an update on the response of salvation and integration offered by the humanitarian corridors.
