Former world leaders lobby for the Nuclear Weapons Ban Treaty

83

56 former government leaders have signed an open letter addressing their own governments. They ask current world leaders to accept the Nuclear Ban Treaty. weaponsconcluded at the UN three years ago.


About this newspaper New York Times.

For the document to come into force, only six ratifications out of 50 required are lacking.

The open letter contains the names of 56 former prime ministers, presidents, foreign ministers and defense ministers from 20 NATO countries, as well as from Japan and South Korea. It was unveiled on the eve of the 75th anniversary of the United Nations at the annual General Assembly.

The letter notes that it is urgent to accept the treaty, as the risks of using nuclear weapons as a result of an accident, miscalculation or deliberately have increased significantly in recent years.

Two of the signatories are former NATO secretaries general - Javier Solana from Spain and Willie Claas from Belgium. Ex-Secretary General of the United Nations Ban Ki-moon also signed the document.

All signers of this letter are from countries that refused to join the treaty.

In 2017, when the UN was signing an agreement, all nine officially recognized nuclear powers, including Russia, boycotted it.

Yesterday, the US President's special envoy for arms control Marshall Billingsley told the newspaper Kommersantthat Russia should approve the American terms of the extension of the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START). And we must hurry, because after Trump's re-election, this will no longer work.

As the RIA NewsIn response, Anton Morozov, a member of the Russian State Duma Committee on International Affairs, noted that it is necessary to develop a treaty base on the limitation of nuclear weapons, but the language of ultimatums is unacceptable.

          Well, why is it necessary to immediately "senile"? These three are cunning provocateurs who are seeking another unilateral disarmament from Russia in favor of the United States.
          Under Gorbachev and Yeltsin, this unilateral nuclear disarmament of the USSR / RF was quite a success for the United States! Why don't the Americans fool the Russian Federation in this matter again and on the same scale?
          It is clear that everything is being done at the suggestion of the US State Department.

          In addition, now these signatories, at the suggestion of the United States, will receive the Nobel Peace Prizes, if the nuclear disarmament of Russia works for the United States for the second time! So they are trying!

            Everything seems to be fine and wonderful: world leaders are calling for a ban on nuclear weapons ... A short phrase spoils EVERYTHING and nullifies everything: on American terms. Is there anyone in the world who believes in the wonderfulness of the United States? It is not hard to guess what this "prohibition" will lead to!

                Good time Vladimir.Tatiana wrote correctly about unilateral disarmament. Just did not give examples-Inclusion of the Oka complex in the disarmament treaty, the Nunn-Lugar Agreement. The so-called HEU-LEU deal. Is that so, do you need to use a quick reference or find it yourself? To the humpbacked stake in the grave - since 1988, the program for access to the utilization complex. The American inspection at the Votkinsk plant compared with it, the nursery-garden Solnyshko.

We have grown wiser and more, as in the 90s, for some reason we do not believe that kind America will come, give money and other goodies, teach us how to live.

                Putin and Obama agree on nuclear disarmament. All warheads were detonated in space.

Suddenly, the Minister of Defense runs into the office "Vladimir Vladimirovich, trouble! Near Saratov, one drunken lieutenant forgot to disarm the whole base, about 40 Topol! What to do ?!

        First of all, America must abandon the idea of ​​its exclusiveness, the role of the world hegemon, and the idea of ​​the unipolarity of the world, which is absolutely unacceptable for America for a number of mental reasons. And if America has such an outlook on the world, it is quite natural for them that only one power, America, has the right to possess the most powerful nuclear weapon today. But they just do not understand that the word "never" does not work like that.

      The point is that the West is already pregnant with TMV. For this is the only way out of the huge bubble inflated by the financial crowd of the Stars and Stripes. But here's the problem: we are ready to nullify the TNW + SNW for this whole gang. And this is openly declared by the President and enshrined in the principles of the use of nuclear weapons. Therefore, the West will definitely have a miscarriage, or if they still jerk out of stupidity, we will have them abortion quickly.
      So the liberoids are trying to take away the scalpel from us under a plausible pretext.
      The "noble" cover is also cleverly invented. But they are not original.
      Prior to that, Babama's black man, counting on the supposedly global Yankee missile defense, tried to reduce our ICBMs to 500 units. Well, after the first disarming strike, to deal with the remaining strategic nuclear weapons of Russia.
      Now they are trying to "disarm" from the other side.
      About one thing, they probably regret that there is no Gorby at the helm, but there is Putin, who stood like a bone in their throat ...

    And then we will be accused of concluding a "pact with Trump", which influenced the fate of the world and humanity as a whole, and not for the better. In the next 10-20 years, no agreements on the reduction of any weapons can be concluded with the United States.
    And these "veterans", God forgive me, would be better off tackling neo-fascism, chauvinism and racism in different countries, where someone else hears their voice.

    Who, if not the former leaders of the countries, should know that any agreement can be terminated at the request of one of the parties at any time. An example of this is the United States unilaterally withdrawn from a number of treaties. A complete renunciation of nuclear weapons is a utopia today. The Americans will never give up the "nuclear baton", and we will never give up the deterrent factor of nuclear weapons.

    Marshall Billingsley said Russia must approve American terms for the extension of the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START)

    "The United States, speaking about reducing the number and quality of nuclear warheads, is ready to reduce their number to the level of China?"
    According to Senator Vladimir Dzhabarov, Billingsley's statement about the United States' readiness to negotiate with Russia on disarmament may be dictated by internal interests.

    The presence of nuclear weapons is a good deterrent for any adversary (North Korea is a good example of this ... and Libya / Iraq / Syria ... and so on is an example of the opposite) Nuclear weapons are a guarantee of sovereign politics and freedom in the highest understanding of international relations ...
    Treaties are possible in the legal field ... but it is not ... the United States and its European allies ... demonstrate a complete disregard for the sovereignty of other countries ... their interests ... any opinions differing from them ... and in this context rejection of nuclear weapons and agreements with those who are initially unable to negotiate is the way to nowhere ...

    The letter notes that it is urgent to accept the treaty, as the risks of using nuclear weapons as a result of an accident, miscalculation or deliberately have increased significantly in recent years.

    And the fact that in case of abandonment of nuclear weapons, the third world becomes inevitable - this does not bother them? Honestly, it's hard for me to understand how seemingly intelligent people can carry such nonsense

    As long as the planet has such "lights" as the United States, only the mentally retarded will refuse nuclear weapons. And on the topic of INF Treaty ... the United States is not negotiable, history has proven. So it's more expensive to agree with their interpretation. You can't negotiate with them at all, they always spit on contracts as soon as they see that they no longer need them. So we don't need it now either. Do you want to renew? Well, yourself .. now all by ourselves ... everything suits us.

      The Yeltsin Center was not built by the mentally retarded, although Boris Nikolayevich, for a friend of Bill and the United States, did a lot of things unilaterally from Russia. It is somehow alarming here, but in general our current bourgeoisie, including renegades, former members of the CPSU who surrendered socialism and the USSR, would actually use nuclear weapons if they are all more in the West now? Surrender immediately - the people will not understand, in the name of peace, humanism, tolerance and their billions in other people's banks, they puff their cheeks for decency, and who knows, especially with an ultimatum on their welfare ...

    In 2017, when the UN was signing an agreement, all nine officially recognized nuclear powers, including Russia, boycotted it.

    Conclusion: "non-nuclear" powers want - to prohibit "nuclear" to have such weapons - naive! And the attempts of the United States with the START Treaty are not promising (and suspicious).

    Yesterday, the US President's special envoy for arms control Marshall Billingsley told the Kommersant newspaper that Russia must approve the American terms for the extension of the Treaty on the reduction of strategic offensive arms (START).
    First of all, because of such a decades-long dictatorship of the United States and its satellite NATO, Russia will not sign this document. It's like a pack of dogs surrounded you and demands to throw the pitchfork, otherwise you are afraid to get back.

    The United States is currently destroying the existing system of treaties and arms control, and the lobbying of the former world leaders, the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons looks somewhat faked.

    And nothing that even a dirty one on his knee, the only effective way to protect the country from the encroachments of the United States of light, exclusively peaceful elves. The prohibition case is, in principle, of course useful if all the bases around the world are taken from the states and only the coastal fleet is left. Well, leave a few missiles to shoot down UFOs or asteroids, it's fantastic. And in the reality of the mental hospital of the planet Garbage, this will be an invitation and permission for the states and their mongrels to redistribute the world.

    this treaty is completely unnecessary for Russia, which is dozens of times inferior to NATO in conventional armaments, besides, treaties with the United States are not worth the paper on which they are written. It would not hurt to remind the states of the chemical weapons treaty, which they have not destroyed, not even to remind them, but to withdraw from it, since one of the parties does not comply with it. Any reduction of nuclear weapons at the current moment, not only will not add security, but on the contrary, will bring the third world war closer. In the event of aggression by NATO, Russia should have the ability to drive all members of the bloc into the stone age. After the deployment of missile defense and reduction to the current values, we are already by a thread. The number of strategic carriers is already critical and they are vulnerable. It is likely that the supporters of the new world order will be satisfied with the damage that Russia can inflict in response to a preemptive strike. No treaties, nuclear weapons are the only guarantor of peace.
