Renewed Appeal for WMD-Free World

Renewed Appeal for WMD-Free World

Iran renewed the call for the total elimination of weapons of mass destruction across the world, saying the international community should work to prevent terror groups from obtaining such banned weapons. Addressing the UN Security Council on Tuesday on behalf of the Non-Aligned Movement, Iran’s UN Ambassador Gholamali Khoshrou expressed concerns over the slow pace of denuclearization and a lack of progress in dismantling WMDs, Press TV reported. Khoshrou described nuclear disarmament as the movement’s “absolute priority”, demanding that threatening to use nukes must be omitted from international military doctrines. Iran currently holds the rotating presidency of NAM. The senior diplomat warned against the access of terror groups to internationally-banned weapons, calling for cooperation among countries to prevent terrorists from acquiring such arms. “NAM welcomes the establishment of zones free from nuclear weapons across the world and calls on all countries that are in possession of such weapons to unconditionally” join the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, he said. Khoshrou expressed the movement’s support for creating a nuclear-free Middle East, reiterating that Israel, which has so far refused to join NPT, must immediately and unconditionally sign the treaty and allow UN inspections of its nuclear facilities.
