Pacific Island Countries Want a World Without Nuclear Weapons

By Neena Bhandari

SYDNEY (IDN) - As political conflicts magnify in the Middle East and North Africa with the spectre of brutal violence from terrorist organisations like ISIS, and the Ukraine crisis reignites the Cold War between the United States, its NATO [North Atlantic Treaty Organisation] allies and Russia; it is imperative that nuclear-armed and non-nuclear states together work for total elimination of nuclear weapons. The risk of use of nuclear weapons, by deliberation or accident, leading to total annihilation looms large more than ever before. [P18]

Security Council Defies U.S. Lawmakers by Voting on Iran Nuke Deal

By Thalif Deen

UNITED NATIONS (IPS) - When all 15 members of the Security Council raised their collective hands to unanimously vote in favour of the nuclear agreement with Iran, they were also defying a cabal of right-wing conservative U.S. politicians who wanted the United Nations to defer its vote until the U.S. Congress makes its own decision on the pact.

The Myths About the Nuclear Deal With Iran

World’s Nuke Arsenal Declines Haltingly While Modernisation Rises Rapidly

Nuclear Weapons Free World No Lost Cause


 BERLIN | NEW YORK (IDN) – The forthcoming 70th anniversary of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August is an appropriate occasion to start developing a legally binding instrument prohibiting nuclear weapons. This, according to experts, is the distinct message emerging from the four-week long United Nations conference, which ended without an outcome document on May 22. [P12] JAPANESE TEXT VERSION PDF

Opinion: A Critical Moment to Fortify Nuclear Test Ban


Lassina Zerbo is Executive Secretary of the Comprehensive Nuclear Test-Ban Treaty Organization

VIENNA (IPS) - The 2015 Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) Review Conference wrapped up last week in New York without agreeing on an outcome document. While this is unfortunate, it is important to remember that the future of the nuclear non-proliferation regime will be determined by more than whether the Review Conference participants produced a document addressing all that currently ails the NPT-based regime.

UNITED NATIONS, May 23 2015 (IPS) - After nearly four weeks of negotiations, the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) Review Conference ended in a predictable outcome: a text overwhelmingly reflecting the views and interests of the nuclear-armed states and some of their nuclear-dependent allies.
