Pakistan urges talks on nuclear disarmament, instead of pushing for limited goals PDF Print E-mail
UNITED NATIONS, Oct 21 (APP): Pakistan has called for redoubling efforts to revive a global consensus that ensures elimination of nuclear weapons “within a specified time frame,” while meeting the security concerns of all states. “We must strive to evolve a rules-based, equitable and non-discriminatory international order that must pursue a comprehensive disarmament agenda,” Pakistani delegate Khalil Hashmi told the General Assembly’s First Committee, which deals with disarmament and international security matters.
Speaking in a thematic debate on nuclear weapons, Hashmi stressed the meed for commencing negotiations on the larger issue of nuclear disarmament instead of pushing for a treaty to ban production of fissile material used as fuel for atomic weapons, which, he said, was not even a non proliferation measure.
Asserting that eliminating nuclear weapons must be achieved by ensuring equal security for all States, he said that the efforts of major nuclear-weapon States had focused mainly on areas where their own security would not be compromised, such as by eliminating biological and chemical weapons, or by banning nuclear tests and fissile material.
The Pakistani delegate said that some of the major Powers promoted a fissile material cut-off treaty (FMCT) only after producing so much of that material that they did not need any more. But no effort had been made to eliminate nuclear weapons or to pursue genuine nuclear disarmament.
Instead of half measures, he said, or disowning obligations to disarm and advocating a treaty banning only the future production of fissile material which was not even a non-proliferation measure there should be a reduction of existing fissile material stocks as well, which would be a genuine step towards the elimination of nuclear weapons.
The search for security was the main driving force for the acquisition and development of nuclear weapons, he said. Because nuclear arsenals were seen as the ultimate weapons, they were therefore considered the ultimate guarantor of security.
But the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki had demonstrated the horror of such attacks, which were an atrocity, he said. Despite high-sounding and moralistic assertions, the Pakistani delegate said, the fact was that nuclear weapons remained integral to strategic doctrines of military alliances and also provided extended deterrence to non-nuclear-weapon States that were members of military alliances.
Pakistan, he added, recognized that nuclear disarmament would not happen overnight or even in a lifetime, however the effort to eliminate those weapons must start now.
