The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry

UK Council leaders back ‘Mayors for Peace’ in urging countries to ratify a new United Nations (UN) treaty prohibiting nuclear weapons

Herald 20th Aug 2017, COUNCIL leaders are backing a call by Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the two
Japanese cities devastated by US atomic bombs 72 years ago, to accelerate
international moves for a nuclear ban.

They are calling for the UK and other nations to renew their nuclear disarmament efforts in a bid to defuse
growing fears of nuclear war in the wake of destabilising tensions between
North Korea and the Trump administration. A conference of ‘Mayors for
Peace’ in Nagasaki earlier this month passed a resolution urging
countries to ratify a new United Nations (UN) treaty prohibiting nuclear
weapons as soon as possible.

The treaty has been agreed by 122 countries
but opposed by nuclear weapons states, including the UK.
