UN chief calls for restart of nuclear disarmament process

The world needs to restart the process of nuclear disarmament,
UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres said on Saturday, August 6,
which is marked as the day for the prohibition of nuclear weapons,
Trend reports
citing TASS.

“The most important thing is to restart a disarmament commitment
and a disarmament process,” he said cited by the UN press

In addition, Guterres was hopeful that new initiatives in
nuclear disarmament would be taken up by the countries.

“I would be very happy if the principle of ‘no first use’ could
be finally adopted by all countries that have nuclear power,” the
UN Secretary General said.

The United States dropped the world’s first nuclear bomb on the
Japanese city of Hiroshima on August 6, 1945 and three days later,
on August 9, they dropped another atomic bomb on Nagasaki. The
official reason for those bombings was to force the Japanese Empire
to surrender in World War Two. The attacks have been the only use
of nuclear weapons in human history so far. The United States has
not yet taken moral responsibility for the bombings, justifying
them by military necessity.
