The UN held a virtual meeting to commemorate International Day against Nuclear Tests, August 29.

At a virtual meeting on Wednesday in commemoration of International Day against Nuclear Tests (August 29), Dang Dinh Quy, Chair of the ASEAN Committee in New York, said ASEAN rejects all kinds of nuclear tests which run counter to efforts, international standards and relevant resolutions of the UN Security Council. Mr. Quy stressed that all ASEAN member states’ ratification of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT) is the bloc’s practical contribution to the ban on nuclear testing. Quy urged ASEAN and the UN to cooperate more to promote multilateralism and basic principles of international law and the UN Charter, including common efforts on nuclear test prevention.
