29.08.2016 International Day against Nuclear Tests

Since nuclear weapons testing began in the mid-twentieth century, history has shown us the terrifying and tragic effects of nuclear weapons testing and its continued threat to human health and global stability. International Day against Nuclear Tests urges States to observe their obligation to develop and sustain international peace through nuclear disarmament. Educational events, activities and messages raise awareness of the need for a unified attempt to prevent further nuclear weapons testing. The UN General Assembly proclaimed this Day in its 2009 resolution A/RES/64/35.
