Days to go:
International Day for the Total Elimination of Nuclear Weapons is a global observance that aims to promote international awareness and action towards the total elimination of nuclear weapons, as well as to highlight the catastrophic humanitarian and environmental consequences of their use. The Observance underscores the importance of achieving a nuclear-weapon-free world, which is vital for global peace, security and sustainable development. It provides an opportunity for governments, civil society organizations and citizens to come together to discuss, debate, and advocate for disarmament and non-proliferation measures, as well as to reaffirm their commitment to a world free of nuclear weapons.
The United Nations General Assembly proclaimed this day in December 2013, in response to growing global concern about the continued existence of nuclear weapons and their possible use in armed conflict. India, as one of the nine countries possessing nuclear weapons, holds a unique position in this dialogue. India's approach to nuclear disarmament has been steadfast, based on the principle of global, verifiable, and non-discriminatory approaches to disarmament. India has consistently called for the negotiation of a comprehensive Nuclear Weapons Convention, and has underscored its commitment to working towards a universal, non-discriminatory, and verifiable mechanism for the elimination of nuclear weapons.
On the occasion of the International Day for the Total Elimination of Nuclear Weapons, various events, seminars, and discussions are organized in India. Experts, academicians, and representatives of civil society come together to discuss the challenges and prospects of nuclear disarmament, and the role that India can play in realizing a nuclear-weapon-free world. By participating in these events, India reaffirms its commitment to disarmament and non-proliferation, and brings attention to the importance of achieving a world free of nuclear weapons. The Observance takes place annually on September 26th, providing a regular platform for dialogue and action in the pursuit of global disarmament.
