Catholic peace movement calls on US, North Korea to stop ‘inflammatory rhetoric’

(NCR Online) The international Catholic peace organization Pax Christi has called on US and North Korean leaders to tone down their rhetoric, saying the recent bout of nuclear brinksmanship “should be relegated to the dustbin of history.”

In an August 14 statement, Pax Christi International asked leaders in both countries “to cease the inflammatory rhetoric and threatening actions of last week that have raised tensions and strained relationships in the region, increasing the possibility of a cataclysmic confrontation.”

“Both nations have undertaken aggressive actions recently which have destabilized an already precarious situation, moving the region-and the world-closer to war,” states the organization, which is an international Catholic coalition based in Brussels that maintains separate national groups in many countries.
