Qatar reiterates commitment to continue efforts to eliminate nuclear weapons

Qatar has reiterated its commitment to continue efforts towards the elimination of nuclear weapons and non-proliferation to achieve security and stability in the region and the world. This came in a statement by the delegation of the State of Qatar, delivered by Abdulrahman Salim Al Ali, a member of the delegation of the State of Qatar participating in the First Committee of the 74th session of the United Nations General Assembly on the item "nuclear weapons", said a press release from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The State of Qatar's statement noted that the international community's efforts to eliminate the threat posed by nuclear weapons to international peace and security have continued since the adoption of the first General Assembly resolution on disarmament, which was followed by the adoption of the document of the first special session of the General Assembly devoted to disarmament and the Non-Proliferation Treaty of 1968.

The State of Qatar's statement said that the proliferation of nuclear weapons in the Middle East contributes to the increased risks arising from tensions and conflicts in the region, noting that it is still the only region in the world that has not made progress on the denuclearization.

He stressed that complete and comprehensive nuclear disarmament would not be possible without the Middle East being free of nuclear weapons, as confirmed by the annual General Assembly resolution and the resolution of the Infinite Tide Conference and the 1995 Review of the Non-Proliferation Treaty, which considered this issue to be one of the fundamental pillars of the tide deal of the Infinite Treaty.
