The UN Secretary General called for the complete destruction of nuclear weapons in the world

According to him, the risks of using nuclear weapons have reached the level observed during the Cold War.

UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres has called for the complete elimination of nuclear weapons in the world.

As Deutsche Welle reports, he said this at the opening of the conference of the countries participating in the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) in New York.

According to him, the risks of using nuclear weapons have reached the level observed during the Cold War.

“Risk reduction is not enough. The destruction of nuclear weapons is the only guarantee that they will not be used. We must work relentlessly towards this goal,” Guterres said.

The UN Secretary General noted that the world community is still “incredibly lucky”, but “one misunderstanding, one miscalculation” separates the world from destruction by nuclear weapons.

“Humanity is in danger of forgetting the lessons learned from the attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Geopolitical tensions have reached new heights,” he said.
