UN Chief Guterres warned, said - the world is just one step away from 'nuclear destruction'

United Nations: UN chief Antonio Guterres warned the world on Monday that the world is just one step away from nuclear destruction. He made the remarks at a high-level meeting convened to review a 50-year-old historic treaty aimed at preventing the spread of nuclear weapons and creating a nuclear-free world. He said that ‘humanity’ is just a misunderstanding, a miscalculation away from nuclear demolition.

He specifically mentioned the dangers of nuclear weapons in the war in Ukraine and conflicts in the Middle East and Asia. He said West Asia and Asia were “moving towards destruction”.

Guterres told several ministers, officials and diplomats attending the month-long conference to review the nuclear non-proliferation treaty that the meeting is taking place at a “critical time for our collective peace and security”.

The Secretary-General said the conference was “an opportunity to discover measures that would help prevent certain disasters and lead humanity on a new path towards a nuclear-free world”.

He cautioned that “geopolitical weapons are reaching new heights, there are about 13,000 nuclear weapons in arsenals around the world and countries enjoying ‘false security’ are spending billions of rupees on catastrophic weapons.”
