UN chief places ban on nuclear weapons testing

UN Secretary-General António Guterres has reiterated his call for a complete ban on the testing of nuclear weapons.

This came in a message to mark the annual International Day Against Nuclear Testing this year that was observed on 29 Aug.

According to Guterres, the commemoration this year comes 75 years after the United States performed its first nuclear test in July 1945.

The test resulted in the country’s atomic bombings on Aug. 6 and 9, 1945, respectively, on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

No less than 226,000 people died from the two attacks, mainly civilians.

Since 1945, the UN chief has said that no less than “2,000 nuclear tests have been carried out by at least eight countries.”

He said the impact on the climate, human health and economic growth of some of the most vulnerable regions in the world were “profound, negative and long-lasting.”

Guterres said: “The Comprehensive-Nuclear-Test Ban has yet to come into effect, considering these impacts and the widespread global consensus for a legally binding prohibition.

“I urge all States which have not signed or ratified the Treaty to do so without further delay once more.

“The nuclear threat is on the rise once again.

“A full moratorium on nuclear testing is a critical step towards mitigating the qualitative and quantitative development of nuclear weapons and towards establishing nuclear disarmament.

“We also remember the survivors of nuclear tests on this International Day and the pain they have suffered and our world will endure for decades and even generations.

“The safest way to remember the nuclear test victims is to ban those in the future.

“Nuclear experimentation is a legacy of a previous era and should not take place in the 21st century.”

NAN reports that the UN General Assembly created the International Day Against Nuclear Tests through Resolution 64/35 of 2 December 2009.

It was first recorded on 29 August 2010, on the anniversary of the closure of Kazakhstan’s Semipalatinsk test site whose government introduced the resolution.

The event seeks to raise awareness about “the consequences of nuclear weapons test explosions or all other nuclear accidents, and the need for their cessation” in order to create a world free of nuclear weapons.
