Motion S5M-20541:Anniversary of the First United Nations Resolution

That the Parliament commemorates the 74th anniversary of the first-ever UN Resolution, 1 (1), which called for the elimination of nuclear weapons; notes that this significant historical and political event took place on 24 January 1946 at the UN General Assembly and that the resolution was adopted with consensus; acknowledges the most recent UN adoption of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, but notes regretfully what it considers the stagnation of meaningful engagement of nuclear powers in international efforts towards disarmament; recognises the opportunity that the 2020 NPT Review Conference presents for nuclear states to re-engage with disarmament processes, and notes calls across the world for the promotion of peace and safety, which it considers can be ultimately secured by the elimination of nuclear weapons.
