Cardinal Charles Maung Bo said on Friday that the “nightmare scenario” of a global nuclear holocaust was “becoming a possibility” following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
The leader of the Catholic Church in strife-torn Burma said in a March 4 message that the world was on the brink of “self-annihilation.”
“The world stands at an existential crossroads. The nightmare scenario of a global nuclear holocaust is frighteningly becoming a possibility,” wrote the president of the Federation of Asian Bishops’ Conferences (FABC).
“The massive attacks on Ukraine and the impending threat of use of Weapons of Mass Destruction have brought the world to the threshold of self-annihilation.”
