A top NATO official said he supports the idea of a world without nuclear weapons, but says a ban by the United Nations won’t help accomplish that goal.

The words by Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg came during a security conference in Sweden on Sunday as he discussed ridding the world of nuclear weapons.

The secretary general added, the goal could only be accomplished by a disarmament of NATO countries, which would be meaningless if countries like China and Russia kept their weapons.

His comments were presumably directed to the Swedish government as they remain divided on whether to sign a United Nations treaty on disarmament.

The Swedish government remains divided on the issue.

    The Left are telling us to surrender to bring peace… Holodomor?

  2. Just as with guns, the world can not get rid of Nuclear weapons.
    Once invented it can’t be un-invented.
    No matter how many treaties are signed someone will always have/make
    kinetic, chemical, biological, and nuclear weapons.
    Those that want to *feel good* can unilaterally disarm, only to
    become slaves to those who don’t.

  3. Good guys having weapons is NOT the problem!!!

  4. UN has no effect on all the bad guys. They keep doing whatever they want to do.

    • They will even sign treaties and not abide by them, hoping others will so they can kill them.

  5. HOW can you get rid of “IT” when you duly endow, allow, enable, CA & Finance “IT”?

  6. The UN has FAILED at each, every, all Missions, Goals, Purposes & Objectives.
    LOOK at their “PEACE KEEPING Mission & Forces ” & “SECURITY COUNCIL”.
    PC has Proven to BE Irresponsible, vile, vicious, Violent, dangerous, destructive, Deadly, Hostile
    Riotous, Terroristic, Disrespectful, Contemptuous, Divisive & Disruptive with Chaos, Turmoil & Conflicts
    in their attempted NWO..

  7. Dude in the picture looks deranged!

  8. NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, maybe instead of disarmament, reduce such an unrealistic idea to laws for harboring WMD. In other words, think outside the box.

  9. You think.
