“As long as nuclear weapons continue to exist, so will the temptation to threaten others with overwhelming military force.”

 Hoping to come to effective accords, and create a safeguard for life under the age of nuclear weapons, the nations create a discussion agenda.

In the morning was discussed in the committee of Disarmament and International Security (United Nations General Assembly First Committee) the risk of nuclear proliferation in the Middle East.

 At first, the nations attempted to establish an agenda, prioritizing the most urgent guidelines, amongst them: international cooperation, obstacles to establish nuclear weapon free zones, lack of domestic legislation and finally, nuclear disarmament and non-proliferation.

The nations aim to solve together and help each other as an international cooperation, they are concerned with the safety of the world since one nuclear weapon has the power to devastate an entire city through the gigantic explosion and subsequent fires and radiation.

Nations as Turkey, South Africa, Egypt and Algeria assert they don’t have nuclear weapons and want to solve the issue in a way that establishes a balance between the nations who own and don’t possess nuclear weapons and eventually, the peace.
