Nuclear arms are the most destructive weapons on the planet, capable of destroying cities, killing millions and leaving behind catastrophic, long-term humanitarian and environmental consequences. Recent friction involving a provocative round of missile tests by North Korea and subsequent ongoing diplomatic efforts to denuclearise the Korean Peninsula and avoid a devastating nuclear conflict has prompted louder calls by many nations for the prohibition and elimination of all nuclear weapons. Which nations currently possess these weapons of mass destruction; and what countermeasures are being taken by the international community, such as the implementation of treaties, negotiations, sanctions and inspections? What is Australia’s current nuclear non-proliferation and disarmament policy; are we doing enough to contain and control the global threat of mutually assured destruction?
