Geneva, July 11, 2017. A United Nations Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons has been adopted. This instrument is the result of a process of multilateral discussions over 70 years, which began with the adoption by the UN General Assembly of its first resolution, on January 24, 1946, which called for the elimination of nuclear weapons.
The new Treaty is a well-deserved tribute to all victims of the use or testing of nuclear weapons. Moreover, it is a fundamental step forward in the urgent path towards nuclear disarmament.
