Bishop welcomes UN resolution on nuclear treaty

September 27, 2016

The United Nations Security Council has passed a resolution calling upon various nations, including the United States, to ratify the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty.

The United States has signed the 1996 treaty, but the Senate has not ratified it.

“The Conference of Bishops has long supported US ratification of the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty, and welcomes the action of the UN Security Council as encouraging this important step toward a world without nuclear weapons,” said Bishop Oscar Cantú of Las Cruces, chairman of the bishops’ Committee on International Justice and Peace.
