PNND Update

Dear friends,

PNND extends our best wishes to you and all our members for the new year.
We thank you for your action for nuclear non-proliferation and disarmament in 2015, and we look forward to working with you in 2016, a year which looks to be very eventful for nuclear weapons issues.
The year began with more than just fire-works. North Korea tested a nuclear weapon on January 7 claiming it to be a hydrogen bomb. Read how parliaments and parliamentarians are responding at Parliamentarians and the North Korean nuclear test.
On a more positive note, the UN Open Ended Working Group (OEWG), established by the United Nations General Assembly in December last year, will begin its operative sessions in February. The OEWG, open to all UN members and also to civil society, will discuss the legal measures and norms required to achieve a nuclear-weapon-free world. It will also discuss proposals to reduce and eliminate the risk of accidental, mistaken, unauthorized or intentional nuclear weapon detonations. See UN re-opens the door to a nuclear-weapon-free world.
This month also sees the 70th anniversary of the first resolution of the United Nations, which called for the elimination of nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction. Commemorative actions are being taken around the world. See Time to implement UN Resolution 1 (1)
Please keep us informed about your actions for nuclear abolition for us to share with the PNND network.

Yours sincerely

Alyn Ware
