UN welcomes efforts to prevent use of nuclear weapons in Middle East

United Nations, Nov 21 (Prensa Latina) The United Nations Secretary General, Antonio Guterres, today welcomed the efforts for the establishment of a zone free of nuclear weapons and other types of weapons of mass destruction in the Middle East.

In a statement released by his spokesman’s office, the UN chief acknowledged the importance of the recent conference held at UN headquarters from November 13-17.

Guterres praised the States participating in the meeting, under the chairmanship of Libya, ‘for their constructive engagement in the elaboration of a future treaty and their commitment to multilateral diplomacy at a time of heightened tensions and acute humanitarian crisis in the Middle East region’.

At the same time, he encouraged them to continue their work during the inter-sessional period of the General Assembly.

The head of the organization reaffirmed his support for continued efforts to achieve, in an open and inclusive manner, the establishment of a zone free of nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction in the Middle East.

This initiative held its first session from November 18-22, 2019 at UN Headquarters and was chaired by Jordan Ambassador Sima Bahous.

A year earlier, the General Assembly recommended to the Secretary-General to convene the Conference with particular concern about the threat over the occupied Palestinian territories.
