Curb Your Nuclear Proliferation
Posted on Sep 24, 2009
A U.N. Security Council session led by President Obama has adopted a resolution calling for nuclear disarmament, focusing largely on measures aimed at halting weapons proliferation and lowering the risk of “nuclear terrorism.”
The UN Security Council has unanimously adopted a resolution calling for nuclear disarmament, in a session chaired by US President Barack Obama.
The resolution calls for further efforts to stop the spread of nuclear arms, to boost disarmament and to lower the risk of “nuclear terrorism”.
It was the first time a US president had chaired a Security Council summit.
The resolution comes amid growing concerns among Western powers over Iran’s nuclear ambitions.
“The historic resolution we just adopted enshrines our shared commitment to the goal of a world without nuclear weapons,” Mr Obama told the Security Council after the resolution was adopted.
