 In 2022-Nuclear Disarmament and Emerging Nuclear States

Country: Canada
Delegate Name: Amenech Kostrzewa

Nuclear weapons and their disarmament has been an ongoing debate since they were invented. Nuclear weapons are argued to be weapons of mass destruction and have been counter-argued as a means of protection. The primary debate is on whether or not each country’s personal protection is more important than the safety of the world as a whole. Canada’s own opinion leans more toward the counter-argument because we believe that they are an unnecessary danger to the human race. We advocate for the complete disarmament of nuclear weapons and inevitably eliminate nuclear weapons in their entirety.
We are proponents of non-proliferation and a step-by-step approach to nuclear discernment. We signed the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) to accomplish this goal. This policy includes having all states join the NPT to put the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty (CTBT) into order and negotiating a Fissile Material Cut-Off Treaty (FMCT). We created a 10-year, $20 billion initiative targeted toward Russia and other countries of the former Soviet Union, called the Global Partnership. At the 2002 Summit in Kananaskis, Canada, we Leaders launched the Global Partnership Against the Spread of Weapons and Materials of Mass Destruction and created a mandate to prevent terrorists and people in possession of nuclear weapons to stop them from acquiring weapons.
We suggest slowly reducing the production and use of nuclear weapons to gradually eliminate them. We have worked closely with NATO, G7 Non-Proliferation Directors Group, the Non-Proliferation, and Disarmament Initiative, and the Stockholm Initiative for Nuclear Disarmament to achieve this mission. We are trying to keep peace and safety throughout the world and we think that getting rid of the biggest threat to humanity is the first step.
