A World Free of Nuclear Weapons

"Embrace! A world free of nuclear weapons" is a film made in support of the International Day against Nuclear Tests (29 August). Produced by the Permanent Mission of Kazakhstan to the United Nations in conjunction with the UN Department for Public Information and the UN Office for Disarmament Affairs, this short film traces the history of nuclear weapons tests since 1945 and their devastating effects on the environment and human health. The film sets out the arguments in favour of the early entry into force of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT) and how this would be an important step towards the goal of a world free of nuclear weapons.
