UAE calls for a nuclear-free world

posted on 06/05/2005: 628 views



The UAE has called for a nuclear-free world, urging the international community to ensure the eradication of all nuclear weapons within a specified timeframe and to take all the necessary steps to ensure that Israel totally dismantles its nuclear installations and to unconditionally ratify the nuclear non-proliferation treaty as per the related international resolutions.



The call was made in a UAE statement to the 7th UN Nuclear Disarmament Conference in New York by the UAE Permanent Ambassador to the United Nations, Abdul Aziz bin Nasir Al Shamsi, who headed the UAE delegation to the conference.



Al Shamsi said the conference came at a time when the world is going through a very critical situation caused by the proliferation of nuclear arms in many parts of the world. This, he added, had contributed to the escalation of security tension and military stand-offs which could lead to "the destruction of people and the threatening of the natural, environment and civil legacy of our world, which is the major source of our strength and resources, as well as being the major factor of our survival and stability."



He said despite the UN's great efforts and the numerous agreements signed during similar conferences held in 1995 and 2000 a number of the nuclear countries continued to develop their nuclear facilities and to boost their nuclear arsenals for non-peaceful purposes but as part of their so-called deterrent security measures.



He said nuclear threat was no more limited to this armament race but extends to other forms of serious threats, including the smuggling of some dangerous nuclear materials by some non-governmental bodies.



"This has increased the danger of having these dangerous materials falling into the hands of criminal and terrorist elements and organisations, which is, in itself, a great threat to the security balance, as well as for regional and international stability," he added.



He pointed out that the UAE, which ratified all the related agreements and treaties based on its total belief and conviction that the agreements would be generalised so as to ensure a nuclear-free world, is highly concerned about the growing disparity between the lack of compliance of the nuclear countries to dismantle their nuclear arsenals, on the one hand, and the right of non-nuclear countries to get unconditional security guarantee, on the other hand, adding that the issue had contributed immensely to the increasing nuclear disarmament diplomatic crisis during nuclear disarmament conferences and posed a big threat to the credibility of this treaty, which is the major tool for the nuclear disarmament and non- proliferation efforts.
