Pope Francis Says United Nations is Powerless

Pope Francis spoke to Argentina’s national news agency, Télam, in a longform interview. The questions and discussion were conducted in Pope Francis’s native language, Spanish.

The pontiff fielded questions on a variety of topics including climate change, the pandemic, poverty and his own decade of the papacy.

At one point in the interview, Pope Francis was asked about the endurance and longevity of “multilateral organizations” — and whether they are able to affect peace. Notably, the pontiff spoke about the role of the United Nations and dismissed the organization as powerless.
