Vatican encourages UN regulations on conventional-arms traffic
Catholic World News - July 21, 2011
The Vatican’s delegation to the UN has called for steps to “prevent the proliferation of all types of weapons which encourage local wars and urban violence and kill too many people in the world every day.”
Speaking at a conference on arms trade, the Vatican delegation—led by Archbishop Francis Chullikatt, the permanent observer for the Holy See at UN headquarters in New York—said that the production and sale of conventional weapons “need to be regulated in accordance with specific principles of the moral and legal order.”
