The Body of Christ Churches representing evangelical churches in the country have called on political leaders to peacefully end the political unrest.
They are urging leaders to have dialogue with the people to solve this matter once and for all.
In the absence of Chairman Rev. Pastor Joseph Walters, deputy, Michael Wilson and members expressed sympathy for students who were shot at and injured by police.
They said the police force is at the forefront of addressing law and order issues however, whatever incident that unfolded last Wednesday is uncalled for.
But, they thanked God that the confrontation did not result in any deaths.
Papua New Guinea is a Christian nation and there’s peace and harmony for the last 40 years since independence and this trend must continue.
The leaders have called for peace and understanding to prevail.
In addition, they asked people having an interest not to take sides but, identify issues at hand that aims to find an amicable solution.
To maintain peace, rules of engagement must be embraced at all times.
