Pope in Nagasaki: no to atomic weapons, deterrence doctrine

Nov 24, 2019 10:48 IST

Pope Francis has demanded world leaders to renounce nuclear weapons and the Cold War-era doctrine of mutual deterrence, saying the arms race decreases security, wastes resources and threatens humanity with catastrophic destruction. Francis made the appeal in Nagasaki at ground zero of the second of the two 1945 US atomic bombings on Japan. After laying a wreath of flowers and praying in the rain at the foot of the memorial to the victims, Francis said the place stands as a stark reminder ‘of the pain and horror that we human beings are capable of inflicting upon one another’.
