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. The recent friction on the Korean peninsula involving provocative North Korean missile tests and antagonistic responses by the US has driven home the need for a total prohibition and elimination of 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?
