Vatican: Pope not mediating in North Korea crisis
October 30, 2017
CWN Editor's Note: The Vatican press office issued a statement on October 30 denying that Pope Francis has become involved in attempts to mediate the crisis arising from North Korea’s threats to use nuclear weapons.
The reports of papal intervention in the crisis arose because of a conference on disarmament that will be held at the Vatican next week. The press statement affirmed that “the Holy Father is working with determination to promote the necessary conditions for a world free of nuclear weapons.”
