The United Nation Headquarters Tour. The place where most of the world come together to reach resolutions. Each room has special meaning and was designed by different architects from a native country. Each room was built with some symbolism in mind. One of them looks unfinished (I think the guide said it was on purpose... because the pursuit of world peace is ongoing...). This tour was a real eye opener. #unitednations#tour#socool#imposing#headquarters#newyorkcity
18 January 2018 – Worldwide concerns over nuclear weapons are the highest they have been since the Cold War, United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres said Thursday, calling for comprehensive political solutions that include dialogue and negotiation to prevent, mitigate and resolve conflicts.
Kazakhstani President Nursultan Nazarbayev said more should be done to enhance confidence in the international non-proliferation regime. He said it should be made more difficult for countries to withdraw from the non-proliferation treaty (NPT) and called on the Council to adopt a resolution defining the implications for breaching the Treaty. Nazarbayev noted the need for developing an effective echanism of applying stringent measures against acquiring and proliferating WMD. He said, " As a main measure to remove incentives for possessing WMD, I believe it is necessary to develop a legally binding system of safeguards by nuclear powers to the states that would voluntarily renounce possessing nuclear weapons as well as to the states with non-nuclear status. This is fair and it could be without great expenditure.”#UNITEDNATIONS 🇰🇿🌎🌍🌏🇺🇸🙏🙏🙏#KAZAKHSTAN#UN#MISSION#NYC#NY#US
