STORYLINE
Secretary-General António Guterres today (26 Sep) said nuclear weapons “offer no security — just carnage and chaos,” and their elimination “would be the greatest gift we could bestow on future generations.”

Addressing a General Assembly High-level plenary meeting to commemorate and promote the International Day for the Total Elimination of Nuclear Weapons, Guterres said, “the era of nuclear blackmail must end. The idea that any country could fight and win a nuclear war is deranged. Any use of a nuclear weapon would incite a humanitarian Armageddon. We need to step back.”

The Secretary-General urged States “to use every avenue of dialogue, diplomacy and negotiation to ease tensions, reduce risk and eliminate the nuclear threat.”

More broadly, he said, “we also need a new vision for nuclear disarmament and non-proliferation” and added that his proposed New Agenda for Peace “calls for meaningful disarmament and developing a common understanding of the multiple threats before us.”

The Secretary-General’s 2021 report, Our Common Agenda, looks ahead to the next 25 years and represents the Secretary-General’s vision on the future of global cooperation.

It calls for a New Agenda for Peace to reduce strategic risks, including nuclear weapons, cyberwarfare, autonomous weapons.
