Pope Francis urged the U.S. and Iran to practice “dialogue and self-restraint” to defuse recent tensions between them.

Those tensions, following the killing by the U.S. of a top Iranian military commander in Baghdad last week, “risk above all compromising the gradual process of rebuilding in Iraq, as well as setting the groundwork for a vaster conflict that all of us would want to avert,” the pope said Thursday in a speech to foreign ambassadors to the Holy See.
