Stockholm, Aug.11(Greenpost)–Swedish Minister for Foreign Affairs Margot Wallström said the only way to fully guarantee security is to totally eliminate all nuclear weapons in a statement issued on Aug.6.
The statement said hundreds of thousands of people paid with their lives due to the bombs, both immediately and much later, and both cities were completely destroyed. The bombs used were relatively weak in comparison with those currently held in the arsenals of nuclear powers. Almost 16 000 nuclear weapons remain.
” We must never forget the victims and the terrible destruction that the human race unleashed on itself. But that is not enough. Today, 70 years on, we must act to ensure that no one is ever again affected by such terrible consequences. The only way to fully guarantee this is to totally eliminate all nuclear weapons,” said Minister for Foreign Affairs Margot Wallström.
