UN Working Group on Nuclear Disarmament
The new UN working group on nuclear disarmament begins today in Geneva, Switzerland. This is it’s first session and it will meet between 22 – 26 February. The working group is open to all states, and is a unique opportunity for governments to start working on developing the elements for a new treaty prohibiting nuclear weapons.
Thanks to everyone who sent emails to your UN Ambassador last week! Our ICAN team will make sure to follow-up with all delegations during the meetings this week to let them know we expect them to support a ban on nuclear weapons.
