UN Secretary General António Guterres called for the complete elimination of nuclear weapons in the world.

As transmits Deutsche Welle he stated this at the opening of the conference of the countries-participants of the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) in New York.

According to him, the risks of using nuclear weapons have reached the level that was observed during the Cold War.

“Risk reduction is not enough. The elimination of nuclear weapons is the only guarantee that they will not be used. We must work tirelessly towards this goal,” Guterres said.

The UN Secretary General noted that the world community is “incredibly lucky” so far, but “one misunderstanding, one miscalculation” separates the world from destruction with the help of nuclear weapons.

“Humanity is in danger of forgetting the lessons learned from the attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Geopolitical tensions have reached new heights,” he said.
