The Catholic Church remains a leading proponent of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons
(TPNW), which 122 states. The Vatican was among the first states to sign and ratify the treaty at the
United Nations in September 2017.
At a Vatican-sponsored symposium in November 2017, the Pope Francis said, “We must never grow
weary of working to support the principal international legal instruments of nuclear disarmament and
non-proliferation, including the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.”
