VATICAN CITY, Feb 7 — Pope Francis today expressed “solidarity with the people of Myanmar” following last week’s military coup, urging the army to work towards “democratic coexistence” as thousands demonstrate in the streets.

The pope was speaking as tens of thousands of protesters poured on to the streets of Yangon in the biggest rally yet against Monday’s military coup.

“I pray that those in power in the country will work... towards the common good,” he said from the balcony overlooking St Peter’s Square after his recital of the Angelus prayer today.

The pope, who visited Myanmar in 2017, called for “social justice, national stability and harmonious democratic coexistence”.
