He added that, however, that was required to engage in dialogue with “everyone”, an implicit reference to Moscow, with which the Holy See has been trying to keep diplomatic channels open since the beginning of the invasion of Ukraine.

However, it would be immoral if it is done with the intent of provoking more war, selling more weapons, or discarding those weapons that are no longer required.”

“Defending yourself is not only lawful but also an expression of love of country,” said Pope Francis, who has frequently called for peace and strongly condemned the arms industry.
