Ukraine turned to the UN Security Council, urging to strengthen the international system of anti-spread of mass destruction weapons. Deputy Foreign Minister Serhiy Kyslytsia said this at the UN Security Council’s open debates on the issue that took place on December 15. The diplomats talked through preventing disasters caused by possible spread and use of mass destruction weaponry.
‘Considering the unstable situation in many regions worldwide, there is an increasing risk of use of chemical, biological and nuclear materials as weapons by non-governmental groups, including terrorists. Due to that, Ukraine supports the idea to implement the urgent preventive measures against the spread and use of mass destruction weapons,’ the Deputy Minister’s statement reads, as quoted by the press service of Ukraine’s UN mission.
Ukraine is the co-author of UN Security Council’s Resolution #2325, foreseeing timely and effective reaction of UN members to new risks and challenges in terms of non-proliferation of mass destruction weaponry.
As 112 International reported earlier, Ukraine will chair the UN Security Council in February 2017.
