India asks UN to help push forward non-discriminatory nuclear disarmamentOctober 18th, 2008 - 4:40 pm ICT by ANI
United Nations, Oct 18 (ANI): India has asked the UN General Assembly to help forge consensus on moving towards non-discriminatory universal nuclear disarmament at a time when the concept is gaining momentum.
Indias delegate to UN Vishvjit P Singh said at the Assemblys Committee on Disarmament and International Security that New Delhi has consistently attached highest priority to nuclear disarmament.
Commending the holistic plan of action for nuclear weapon free world presented by former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi in 1988, he said that it is by far the most comprehensive initiative, which remains valid even 20 year later.
Singh re-introduced three resolutions on behalf of India on convention on prohibition of nuclear weapons, reducing nuclear danger and preventing terrorists from acquiring nuclear weapons.
Like previous years, the resolutions would be discussed by the Committee and then by the General Assembly. (ANI)
