OPINION: Sleepwalking Towards Nuclear War

Nuclear Abolition News | IPS


OSLO (IPS) – New military measures to deter what NATO perceives to be a direct threat from Russia were adopted at the alliance’s Heads of State meeting in Wales (Sep. 4-5). A few days earlier, President Barack Obama made promises in Estonia that the three tiny Baltic NATO member states would “never stand alone”

Since early 2014, Russia has done practically all that Western leaders have warned President Vladimir Putin in advance not to do. Crimea was occupied and annexed. Pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine were encouraged and given practical support. Later, Russian personnel and equipment came more and more openly into conflict with Ukrainian forces.

Informe de las Naciones Unidas enjuicia el sistema de vigilancia humanitaria en respuesta a detonaciones nucleares

Por Jamshed Baruah

BERLIN (IDN) – Alrededor de 22 mil armas nucleares siguen amenazando la supervivencia de la humanidad casi 70 años después de los bombardeos atómicos de Hiroshima y Nagasaki, y más de 2.000 pruebas nucleares se han realizado hasta la fecha, de acuerdo con la Oficina de Asuntos de Desarme de las Naciones Unidas (UNODA). Pero el mundo no está preparados para responder con eficacia a las detonaciones, “incluso en niveles básicos, por no hablar de una guerra nuclear a gran escala”.

UNITED NATIONS  (IPS) – After four long years of protracted negotiations, a proposal for a nuclear weapons-free zone (NWFZ) in the strife-torn Middle East remains in limbo – and perhaps virtually dead.

But United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, a relentless advocate of nuclear disarmament, is determined to resurrect the proposal. [P] JAPANESE TEXT VERSION PDF   SPANISH | TURKISH

UN Report Faults Humanitarian Vigilance in Response To Nuclear Detonations

Nuclear Abolition News | IDN


BERLIN (IDN) – About 22,000 nuclear weapons continue to threaten humankind’s survival nearly 70 years after the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and more than 2,000 nuclear tests have been conducted to date, according to the United Nations Office for Disarmament Affairs (UNODA). But the world is far from prepared to effectively respond to nuclear weapons detonations, “even at basic levels of preparedness, let alone a large-scale nuclear war”.

UN Report Faults Humanitarian Vigilance in Response To Nuke Detonations – Hindi

संयुक्त राष्ट्र संघ की रिपोर्ट द्वारा परमाणु विस्फोटों के प्रति अनुक्रिया में मानवतावादी निगरानी को त्रुटिपूर्ण पाया गया

जमशेद बरूआ द्वारा

बर्लिन (आईडीएन) – हिरोशिमा और नागासाकी की परमाणु बमबारी के लगभग 70 वर्षों बाद भी लगभग 22,000 परमाणु हथियारों द्वारा मानवता की उत्तरजीविता के लिए खतरा बना हुआ है, और युनाइटेड स्टेट्स ऑफिस फॉर डिसआर्मामेंट अफेयर्स (यूनोदा) के अनुसार, आज की तारीख तक 2,000 से अधिक परमाणु परीक्षाएं की गई हैं। लेकिन विश्व समुदाय परमाणु हथियारों के विस्फोटों के प्रति “बड़े स्तर पर परमाणु युद्ध की तो बात ही छोड़ दें, तैयारी के मूल स्तरों पर भी,” प्रभावशाली ढंग से अनुक्रिया करने के लिए तैयार नहीं है। PDF

FN-rapport pekar på stor humanitär vaksamhet som svar på kärnvapendetonationer

Av Jamshed Baruah

BERLIN (IDN) – Omkring 22 000 kärnvapen fortsätter att hota människans överlevnad nästan 70 år efter atombomberna över Hiroshima och Nagasake, och fler än 2 000 kärnvapenprov har genomförts fram till idag, enligt Förenta Nationernas avdelning för Nedrustning (UNODA). Men världen är långt ifrån förberedd på en effektiv respons på kärnvapendetonationer, “även på grundläggande förberedelsenivå, och ännu mindre på ett storskaligt kärnvapenkrig”.

FN-rapport skylder på manglende årvåkenhet etter atomvåpensprengninger

Av Jamshed Baruah

BERLIN (IDN) – Rundt 22 000 atomvåpen truer fortsatt menneskeheten, nesten 70 år etter atombombingen av Hiroshima og Nagasaki, og ifølge FNs kontor for nedrustning (ODA) har mer enn 2000 prøvesprengninger blitt gjennomført til dags dato. Men verden er langt fra forberedt på å håndtere en atomvåpensprengning på en effektiv måte, «selv med grunnleggende nivåer av beredskap, og slett ikke en atomkrig i stor skala.»
