The main focus of the next Vatican Conference which is expected to take place on  November 10th and 11th, 2017, will be Nuclear disarmament, following the recent progress towards international bans on nuclear weapons. The conference is conceived as a follow-up to the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, passed July 7, at the United Nations. The conference at the Vatican aims to be another step on the path towards nuclear disarmament and is expected to build to negotiate the Nuclear Weapons Ban Treaty, which took place in New York in March, 2017.

As reported by ewtn news , His Grace Archbishop  Silvano Maria Tomasi, Secretary of the Dicastery  for promoting Integral Human Development, asserted that “The Holy See is working to create a public opinion convinced that the world is safer without nuclear weapons, rather than with them.”

Holy Father Pope Francis, had also highlighted the significance of eliminating nuclear weapons as a challenge and a humanitarian imperative and  asked the faithful to promote reflection on an ethics of peace and multilateral and cooperative security that goes beyond the fear that prevail in many debates today.
