SGI Statement

The SGI’s public statement was submitted to the UN General Assembly First Committee on disarmament and international security on October 17, 2018. It urges the world’s governments to support the early entry into force of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW), and calls on those governments as yet unable to do so to identify specific prohibitions to which they are able to commit. It also emphasizes the importance of disarmament education and characterizes the struggle for disarmament as “a struggle against all forms of injustice and intolerance.”
