Nuclear disarmament and the elimination of nuclear dangers: Hans-Joachim Daerr

... today's threats to security and stability have become less predictable and require at the same time a joint response. They illustrate the need for a new international order organized around shared values, common norms of behaviour and the rule of law. Disarmament, arms control, and non-proliferation are indispensable elements of this cooperative international order... We have to make sure that the functions that are today attributed to nuclear weapons become dispensable ... Nuclear disarmament is the counterpart of the renunciation of nuclear weapons by non-nuclearweapons states. This bargain must not be undermined ... The NPT is no licence to perpetuate the status of the nuclear "haves" versus the nuclear "have nots."
