International Day for the Total Elimination of Nuclear Weapons

Van: op 13 juli 2018

The General Assembly declared the International Day in December 2013, in resolution A/RES/68/32 as a follow-up to the high-level meeting of the General Assembly on nuclear disarmament held on 26 September 2013.

The resolution,  inter alia, calls for the “urgent commencement of negotiations in the Conference on Disarmament for the early conclusion of a comprehensive convention on nuclear weapons to prohibit their possession, development, production, acquisition, testing, stockpiling, transfer and use or threat of use, and to provide for their destruction.”

The resolution declares 26 September as the International Day for the Total Elimination of Nuclear Weapons devoted to furthering the objective of the total elimination of nuclear weapons, including through enhancing public awareness and education about the threat posed to humanity by nuclear weapons and the necessity for their total elimination, in order to mobilize international efforts towards achieving the common goal of a nuclear-weapon-free world and furthermore “decides to convene, no later than 2018, a United Nations high-level international conference on nuclear disarmament to review the progress made in this regard.”
