Pope Francis encourages mothers to breastfeed during a baptism ceremony Video

Pope Francis baptised 34 infants during a long ceremony in the Sistine Chapel on Sunday and told their mothers to feel free to breastfeed them there if they were hungry

Gingrich expressed confidence that Trump, in his first term, will make visible progress on the North Korean nuclear issue.

He made a strong call for the protection of the family and warned against forms of "ideological colonisation by the stronger and the wealthier, to the detriment of the poorer and the most vulnerable".

The Pope added that Vatican City was among 122 countries that supported a United Nations treaty previous year to ban nuclear weapons, and said "nuclear weapons must be banned".

The Pope called for a broader application of human rights which grants the right to healthcare of every individual along with the "necessary social services".

The pope's comments came a day before the two Koreas are scheduled to hold high-level talks for the first time in more than two years.

In the speech, Francis also repeated his call for a two-state-solution between Israelis and Palestinians and respect for the "status quo" of Jerusalem following U.S. President Donald Trump's decision to recognise the city as Israel's capital.

The pope has made similar comments in past ceremonies including in 2014 where he said'If they are hungry mothers feed them without thinking twice because they are the most important people here

Therefore, it is urgent, he continued, that government policies support the family, on which "the future and the development of states depend", and without which future challenges can not be met. We must not forget this language of children, to communicate like they do.

This disregard for life and the family has had an vast effect, particularly in those parts of the world experiencing a decline in birth rate, which has led to a true "demographic winter!" he underlined.

"There is a need, then, to abandon the familiar rhetoric and start from the essential consideration that we are dealing, above all, with persons", he said.

"One must not downplay the importance of our own responsibility in interaction with nature".

During a speech to diplomats Monday, Francis said, "There is a need to take up, in a united effort, the responsibility of leaving to coming generations a more handsome and livable world".
