(With photos) NEW YORK, Oct 31 (KUNA) -- The State of Kuwait has called on the international community to work actively to achieve the goal of establishing a zone free of nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction in the Middle East.
This came in a speech last night by member of the Permanent Delegation of the State of Kuwait to the United Nations, the first secretary Anas Issa Al-Shaheen during meetings of the committee on Disarmament and International Security in the context of the current 68th session of the General Assembly of the United Nations.
Al-Shaheen pointed to the size of the imminent danger that lies in deployed weapons of mass destruction in many parts of the world.
He added that it is hard to find a spot in the world that is not exposed to the dangers of chemical or biological or radiological disaster, that is inadvertent or intentional, saying these dangers have become threatening factors to everything associated with land, environment, human civilization and even space.
He said that "all this requires us to come together to agree on ways to evacuate this world of those risks." He said that the international community is firmly convinced that the survival of human beings and their living in peace lies in the final and complete disposal of the arsenals of weapons of mass destruction.
For this reason, Al-Shaheen said concerted international efforts of members of the international organization over many decades have come together in order to achieve this lofty goal through treaties prohibiting such weapons and agreements that prevent their experiences.
He explained that such goal would not be achieved without the commitment of all parties in the region in this desire agreed by the world since the 1995 and confirmed by the international community once again in 2010 during the Review Conference of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.
