Statement on Trump Davos Speech from ICAN

WASHINGTON - “Donald Trump just said we have to de-nuke North Korea. Rather than trying to threaten them with more nukes and make it more likely to use them, the best way he can make sure North Korea does not have nuclear weapons is to join the Treaty to ban those weapons. That is how the majority of the world is moving towards nuclear disarmament.”

- Beatrice Fihn, Executive Director of ICAN

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.

Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news site. We don't survive on clicks. We don't want advertising dollars. We want the world to be a better place. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. If you can help today—because every gift of every size matters—please do. Without Your Support We Simply Won't Exist.

The International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) is a coalition of more than 400 non-governmental organisations in 95 countries. We are calling on governments to launch negotiations on a treaty prohibiting nuclear weapons, which would place them on the same legal footing as chemical and biological weapons and help pave the way to their complete elimination.
