Eradicating an Entire Category of Nuclear Weapons 1987
US and USSR agree to verifiably ban an entire class of nuclear weapons through the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty.
The Global Zero Action Plan is an ambitious 10-year framework to achieve a legally-binding agreement among the world’s nine nuclear-armed states — China, France, India, Israel, North Korea, Pakistan, Russia, the United Kingdom, and the United States — to phase out all nuclear weapons by 2045 under strict international monitoring and verification.
While progress has been made to rally non-nuclear nations around a legal prohibition against these weapons, abolition cannot be achieved without bringing nuclear-armed states into direct negotiations. There’s no way around that. We need to take these governments head on and get them to the table for a dialogue on disarmament that can ultimately lead to negotiations and a formal accord.
