(Most of) The Mideast Wants a Nuclear-Weapons-Free World

MIDEAST:
Which countries are giving the green light to #nuclearban?

An important component in the global effort to achieve a total ban on nuclear weapons is the commitment of (most of) the countries in the Middle East.

The map reproduced above is from the ICAN Austria interactive map of countries supporting the nuclear weapons ban negotiations at the UN. The countries marked with a green dot support a nuclear ban.

The situation in the Middle East is suggestive of the larger global effort to ban nuclear weapons. Efforts for a nuclear weapons-free zone in the Mideast have been thwarted for years. Now the supporters have joined together with the global effort to ban nuclear weapons worldwide. See:

"Netanyahu thanks US for blocking push for Middle East nuclear arms ban."
