Today, 110+ members of the European Leadership Network’s senior network representing political, diplomatic, and military figures from 24 countries in the wider European space release a joint statement calling on world leaders to elevate nuclear diplomacy as a priority at this year's United Nations General Assembly. Signatories range from Cold War Ministers and decision-makers, to serving Members of Parliament, former UN General Assembly Presidents, leading nuclear scientists, and military personnel who share concerns over rising nuclear risks, warning:

  • international arms control is eroding;

  • dangerous military technologies are emerging that are unregulated;

  • dialogue between adversaries is constrained, adding to instability; and

  • failure to act is likely to result in a new nuclear arms race

The full statement and list of signatories is available to view here.
