>> Pope Francis delivering his State of the World address on Monday. Calling for talks to ease the situation on the Korean peninsula and a legally binding ban on nuclear weapons.>>
> The Pontiff on Monday instead pushing for peace, according to Reuters Senior Vatican Correspondent Philip Pullella.>> Today he took advantage of the fact that there were diplomats from more than 180 countries around the world in the same room to repeat his call for a total ban on nuclear weapons.
President Trump retweeted in retaliation that his button was bigger and more powerful.>>
And to also restate the possibility, restate his concern about the possibility that there may be a nuclear war that even starts by accident.>> Pope Francis also called for a two state solution between Israelis and Palestinians and respect for the, quote, status quo in Jerusalem. That after Trump's decision to recognize the city as Israel's capital.
After his speech, the pontiff spoke to diplomats from nations such as South Korea and the US, hopeful that his words might resonate.>> After the speech is finished, there's a lot of back room diplomacy that goes on that, again, will not result in any kind of change of opinion by world leaders overnight.
But the Pope feels that he's sowing a seed for change which may come not in his lifetime, but maybe in the future some time.
