In the Name of God, the Beneficent, the Merciful
Mr. Chairman,
Mr. Secretary General
Dignitaries,
Respected delegations,
Ladies, Gentlemen
Speaking at this historical gathering is a special privilege. Participation of a large number of world leaders in this meeting which is the first meeting of the General Assembly on nuclear disarmament is in fact an evident sign of widespread support from this important issue. Representing NAM which itself has initiated holding the meeting, I necessitate myself to appreciate all of you for your supports.
Mr. president, I thank you and the previous president very much for you efforts in holding this meeting. I also thank the secretary general for the statements he made.
Dignitaries, ladies and gentlemen,
Having a safe and calm world is still our common goal and ideal.
The horrific incidents of Hiroshima and Nagasaki made us more determined to prevent the recurrence of similar devastation and killing the language which cannot be put into words.
Accordingly, in a calculated move, the first resolution of the assembly called for a world devoid of nuclear weapons. . As a result of international efforts, we have access to a series of contract, norms and institutes whose duties is achieving such an agreed upon goal.
NAM will present a resolution to the United Nations General Assembly to hold conferences on September 26 every year to monitor annihilation of weapons of mass destruction and that the Disarmament must be accomplished in the next five years.
“De-targeting, de-alerting or reducing the number of nuclear weapons is not a substitute for their total elimination.
“The world has waited too long to disarm,” Rohani said. “As long as nuclear weapons exist, the threat of their use exists.”
The world must be freed from weapons of mass destruction and that the global community must be handed over to the next generation without WMDs.
Israel must join the Non-Proliferation Treaty without delay and the Middle East must be freed from weapons of mass destruction.
“Any use of nuclear weapons is tantamount to violating the UN Charter and a crime against humanity. Those military and security strategies that justify such application are unacceptable. Meantime, threatening the non-nuclear countries to use nuclear weapons against them should come to an end. Renovation of such weapons nullifies their effect for their complete annihilation and should be stopped. For such reasons, the only way for removal of the threat of these weapons is their complete annihilation.”
