International Day Against Nuclear Tests

On September 6, the Permanent Observer Mission of the Holy See to the United Nations gave a statement during the General Assembly meeting to commemorate the International Day Against Nuclear Tests.

In its statement, the Holy See said that since the dawn of the nuclear age, it has been expressing deep concern for the violent use of atomic energy and has supported all initiatives that contribute toward a world free of nuclear weapons, including banning nuclear testing. The Holy See said that it continues to urge the rapid entry into force of the Comprehensive Nuclear Test-Ban Treaty as well as to foster the mutual trust necessary for those eight remaining States whose ratification is necessary for it to enter into force to have the confidence to ratify it.
