In the world right now is a world that is living in fear from the idea of nuclear annihilation from multiple nuclear armed countries. There are many countries that own nuclear weapons such as: China, The US, Russia, The UK, France, India, North Korea, Pakistan, and Israel. There are also many countries hosting nuclear weapons such as: Belgium, The Netherlands, Italy, Turkiye, and Germany. Poland is also seeking to host US nuclear weapons on its soil. With rising tensions in the world and many nuclear armed states being hostile towards one another, creating fear of possible nuclear destruction. The two nuclear armed alliances of Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) have had a worsening relationship which may cause launching of nuclear weapons at each other.
The Philippines has always been interested in harnessing the power of nuclear energy to power the cities of our country. The Philippines has also put a section into the constitution that would prohibit the placement of nuclear weapons on Filipino soil. The Philippines has also signed the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons. The Philippines believes that we should use nuclear power for good and use it to make a prosperous nation and world and not use them to scare, intimidate, and destroy countries.
The Philippines is for the use of nuclear energy to make successful cities and nations and not use it for the destruction of our world. There is no good reason to ever use a nuclear weapon or use nuclear weapons to intimidate other countries. It is important to disarm these terrible weapons and try to use nuclear energy to make clean cities for developing countries.
