Beyond the pandemic, the priority should be the elimination of nuclear weapons

Eliminating nuclear weapons should be a priority as we look beyond the pandemic  ipolitics, By Gar Pardy. Mar 25, 2021,  “………..The world is not going to gather in Vienna as it did in 1815, where it reorganized Europe after the Napoleonic wars, and provided for a hundred years of relative freedom from wars. Today, the turmoil is different where coping with new diseases and the pollution of our environment takes precedent over global power relationships. However, the significance of those new relationships may give us the basis for a new world order more tuned to the needs of what was written in 1945 UN Charter. China, Russia and the United States were signatories to the Charter which opens with the words

WE THE PEOPLES OF THE UNITED NATIONS DETERMINEDto save succeeding generations from the scourge of war, which twice in our lifetime has brought untold sorrow to mankind, andto reaffirm faith in fundamental human rights, in the dignity and worth of the human person, in the equal rights of men and women and of nations large and small, andto establish conditions under which justice and respect for the obligations arising from treaties and other sources of international law can be maintained, andto promote social progress and better standards of life in larger freedom,

Gar Pardy is retired from the Canadian foreign service and comments on public policy issues from Ottawa.  His latest book “China is a Changing World” is available from all online book stores and from Books on Beechwood in Ottawa. https://ipolitics.ca/2021/03/25/eliminating-nuclear-weapons-should-be-a-priority-as-we-look-beyond-the-pandemic/
