Paris, Dec.9 (ANI): British Foreign Secretary David Miliband has welcomed the launch of the international campaign for nuclear disarmament called “Global Zero”.
In a statement released by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, Miliband said: “In Paris today a new international campaign on nuclear disarmament is being launched. Global Zero will campaign for a world free of nuclear weapons.The UK already supports this aim, and the issue needs our urgent attention.
“We have to stop the spread of nuclear weapons - Iran’’s nuclear ambitions,for example, could be massively destabilising in a region that could do without a nuclear arms race. But, if we want the international community to work together to stop other countries getting nuclear weapons, we need to show them we are serious about multilateral nuclear disarmament. This is why the UK wants to help build a global coalition around the shared vision of a nuclear weapon-free world. I set out six key steps we need to take to > achieve this in my article in the Guardian Online,” he added. (ANI)
