The UN has declared the highest risk of using nuclear weapons since the Cold War

The UN has seen the increasing role of nuclear weapons in national security strategies. This was announced by the Deputy Secretary-General of the organization Izumi Nakamitsu.

“The risk of using nuclear weapons as a result of deliberate actions, an incident, or due to a miscalculation is the highest since the Cold War,” the Deputy Secretary-General stressed. She said that the UN is most concerned about the possibility of escalation and misinterpretation of the actions of the parties.

Among the reasons for this trend, Nakamitsu cited the build-up of a multipolar nuclear order, tensions between countries, and the nuclear arms race. “We see a lack of dialogue, a decrease in transparency. The arms control regime continues to collapse,” she concluded.

The Deputy Secretary-General hoped that the nuclear powers would agree on the elimination of weapons. According to her, this is the best way to eliminate the risks of a nuclear conflict.
