The member states of BRICS called for “A world free of nuclear weapons” in a joint declaration adopted on Thursday.
“We reaffirm our commitment to a world free of nuclear weapons and stress our strong commitment to nuclear disarmament and our support to work on this subject during the 2022 session of the Conference on Disarmament,” the declaration reads.
The group also lauded a joint statement by the permanent members of the UN Security Council (P5) – China, France, Russia, the UK, and the US – affirming that a “Nuclear war cannot be won and must never be fought.” The major nuclear powers managed to show a rare display of unity earlier this year.
Apart from that, the BRICS resolution rallied support towards “Negotiations in bilateral and multilateral formats to resolve all issues pertaining to the Korean Peninsula, including its complete denuclearization.” The group also urged to “Resolve the Iranian nuclear issue through peaceful and diplomatic means.”
The BRICS bloc – Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa – has convened for its 14th summit, hosted by China, which currently holds the rotating presidency within the group. The BRICS leaders held a meeting on Thursday via a video link.
