‘Getting rid of nukes’ only way to guarantee non-use

NEW YORK: Kuwait has said the only way to guarantee non-use of nuclear weapons was to get rid of them. Faisal Al-Enezi, Deputy Permanent Representative to the UN, called on the importance of multilateral action for disarmament and non-proliferation of weapons under the UN umbrella.

He was addressing the UN General Assembly’s first committee and said the ultimate goal was to complete disarmament of weapons, in order to achieve genuine peace and security, as well as to effectively address the threats of wars.

Al-Enezi voiced concern regarding the failure of abiding by nuclear non-proliferation treaty and banning of nuclear tests, urging all member countries to unite and address these concerns.

Kuwait, he added, chaired a conference on clearing the Middle East from nuclear weapons and weapons of mass destruction (WMD) since last November and said Kuwait would reach out to all participants in the upcoming conference which would be held next month. – KUNA
