UN approves Iran's proposal for world's nuclear disarmament

UN (IP) - The biennial resolution proposed by the Islamic Republic of Iran on the world's nuclear disarmament was adopted with the support of a majority of UN member states.

Iran PressAmerica: The Iranian proposal adopted by the UN as a resolution is supposed to pursue the implementation of the agreements reached the Non- Proliferation Treaty (NPT) review conferences in 1995, 2000, and 2010.

Part of the resolution stresses the implementation of the decision of the NPT Review Conference in 1995 to establish a nuclear-weapon-free West Asia region.

The decision calls for the Israeli regime to join the NPT and accept the International Atomic Energy Agency's (IAEA) oversight of its nuclear facilities.

The resolution calls on the member states of the Treaty on the NPT to speed up the implementation of their commitments to completely destroy their nuclear arsenal in accordance with the principles of transparency, irreversibility, and international oversight.

Under the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, nuclear states are committed to destroying all of their nuclear weapons.

Furthermore, the nuclear states are legally obliged not only to refrain from any action to build nuclear weapons, but also to refrain from transferring such weapons to other countries, deploying them outside their territory, and cooperating with other governments to build nuclear weapons.

In the resolution in question, Iran asks for security assurances so that the owners of the nuclear weapons do not use or threaten to use nuclear weapons against the non-nuclear countries. 

The US, the Israeli regime, the European Union, and several of the predominantly Western allies of the US voted against the resolution. By its 'Little boy' and 'Fat man', the US killed about 220,000 Japanese people in Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945.
