And with a phone call scheduled on Saturday between President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin, Gorbachev is urging the leaders to put a halt to a such a deadly path by spearheading a United Nations resolution that essentially bans nuclear war.
“I urge the members of the United Nations Security Council — the body that bears primary responsibility for international peace and security — to take the first step,” the 1990 Nobel Peace Prize winner wrote in a Time magazine opinion piece this week. “Specifically, I propose that a Security Council meeting at the level of heads of state adopt a resolution stating that nuclear war is unacceptable and must never be fought.”
Then taking direct aim at the superpower leaders, he writes, “I think the initiative to adopt such a resolution should come from Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin — the presidents of two nations that hold over 90 percent of the world’s nuclear arsenals and therefore bear a special responsibility.”
He adds, “Politicians and military leaders sound increasingly belligerent and defense doctrines more dangerous. Commentators and TV personalities are joining the bellicose chorus. It all looks as if the world is preparing for war.”
