UN wants world nuclear disarmament

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has urged nuclear powers to dismantle their atomic arsenals in line with the Non-Proliferation Treaty.
«Nuclear weapons produce horrific, indiscriminate effects. Even when not used, they pose great risks,» said Ban in a Friday conference at the East-West Institute. «Accidents could happen any time. The manufacture of nuclear weapons can harm public health and the environment,» he added. Nuclear-armed states, which include the United States, Russia, Britain, France and China, have yet to fulfill their NPT obligations and abolish their warhead arsenals. 

«Some states view nuclear weapons as offering the ultimate deterrent of nuclear attack, which largely accounts for the estimated 26,000 that still exist,» continued Ban.

The Bush administration has refused to comply with the NPT under the pretext that it would ‹send a wrong signal to countries like Iran and North Korea›.

«We appreciate the secretary-general’s comments, but our policy remains clear…The US continues to maintain a moratorium on nuclear tests, and urges other states to do likewise,» responded a US official on the condition of anonymity.

Iranian officials say non-compliance with the Non-Proliferation Treaty has seriously undermined the process of global nuclear disarmament.

«Stark double-standards and a blatant lack of commitment to NPT principles and provisions have diluted international trust in the treaty,» said Iranian Majlis (parliament) Speaker Ali Larijani on Oct 14.

Last month, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad called on the UN nuclear watchdog to establish a disarmament committee — comprising of independent states — to supervise the disarmament of nuclear powers.

    Thanks so much for writing about the EastWest Institute’s conference to eliminate nuclear weapons. We hope the event will breathe new life into the nonproliferation discussion, and help to finally rid the world of the unacceptable threat of nuclear weapons — from ALL corners of the world.

    Thank you for helping to spread the word and build on this momentum. Please let me know if there’s anything I can help you with.
