Dialogue not 'displays of force' key to Korean peace: Pope

SEOUL - Pope Francis said dialogue and not "displays of force" would bring peace to the divided Korean peninsula as he began a visit Thursday to South Korea that the nuclear-armed North marked with a series of rocket launches.

In a speech to President Park Geun-Hye and senior officials in Seoul, Francis said the quest for inter-Korean reconciliation was one that had implications for "the stability of the entire area and indeed of the whole war-weary world."
