UN Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres called for a new global effort to get rid of nuclear weapons.

Speaking to the Conference on Disarmament at the UN complex in Geneva yesterday, Mr Guterres said, many states still wrongly thought that nuclear weapons made the world safer.

He said, it is great and justified anxiety around the world about the threat of nuclear war and the countries must work towards forging a new momentum on eliminating nuclear weapons.

The Conference on Disarmament is the world’s main forum for nuclear disarmament, but since 1996 it has been deadlocked by disagreements and distrust between rival nuclear powers.
