Five nuclear powers want to prevent the spread of nuclear weapons

The five permanent members of the UN Security Council want to prevent further spread of nuclear weapons. The US, Russia, China, France and the UK issued a joint statement on Monday. “A nuclear war cannot be won and must never be fought,” declared the five nuclear powers.

A joint statement by the five Security Council members is rare. It took place before a conference to examine the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, which is to take place this year and is being coordinated by France. The Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty of 1968 (NPT) aims to ban the proliferation of nuclear weapons.
