Kuwait says nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty credibility tarnished

Despite a deep conviction in the importance of the global nuclear Non Proliferation Treaty, Kuwait believes its credibility has become questionable.



The absence of true commitment from nuclear nations to rid themselves of their weapons has damaged the treaty, slowed down its mechanisms and caused its most recent review talks to fail, said Kuwait’s representative.

The remarks were made by the Kuwaiti UN mission Second Secretary at the third Preparatory Committee for the 2020 Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty Review Conference held at the United Nations headquarters.

The possession and development of nuclear weapons does not ensure regional and global peace and security and increases instability, Ibrahim Faisal Al-Daei told nations gathered at the talks.

The complete and ultimate elimination of nuclear weapons is the sole guarantee that humanity would be spared their dangers, he underlined.

Therefore, these nations should discard nuclear weapon-based defence strategies, through halting the development of their nuclear arsenals or developing alternatives.

It is crucial that the humanitarian dimensions and catastrophes that are left behind by these weapons are taken into consideration, he argued.

“Reaching a binding document on the non-use or threat of use of nuclear weapons against non-nuclear states is a goal we aspire to, until these weapons are totally eliminated,” the Kuwaiti diplomat said.



Al-Daei also called for nations under threat to be offered “unconditional and legally-binding contractual security guarantees.”
