Countries with nuclear weapons must commit to the “no first use” of those weapons. They must also assure States that do not have nuclear weapons that they will not use – or threaten to use – nuclear weapons against them. And they must be transparent throughout ... My message to them is simple: Take the nuclear option off the table – for good. It’s time to proliferate peace. — ANTÓNIO GUTERRES
