The world still lives in the shadow of a nuclear disaster, progress towards the complete elimination of nuclear weapons has frozen, UN Secretary-General António Guterres said, speaking at a high-level UNGA meeting.
“Seventy-five years after the founding of the UN and the terrible bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the world continues to live in the shadow of a nuclear disaster,” Guterres said.
He said some nations consider nuclear weapons vital to their national security and survival. He stressed that the elimination of nuclear weapons is critical to the preservation of life on Earth.
“Unfortunately, progress towards the total elimination of nuclear weapons has stalled and risks rolling back,” the Secretary-General said at the General Assembly meeting devoted to the issue of total elimination of nuclear weapons.
