High-level meeting issues resounding call for banning and eliminating nuclear weapons
On 26 September 2013, the UN General Assembly hosted a high-level meeting on nuclear disarmament. The overwhelming majority of countries participating in the event condemned the continued existence of nuclear weapons and called for their banning and elimination. While some of the nuclear-armed states spoke disparagingly about the meeting’s importance, the rest of the international community demanded immediate action to remove the scourge of these weapons of terror once and for all.
