India has insisted that prominence of nuclear weapons needs to reduce from international diplomacy and that all nations possessing nukes need to work to this end. India has called for a meaningful dialogue among all states possessing nuclear weapons to build trust and confidence and for reducing the salience of atomic weapons in international affairs.

“India remains committed to the goal of a nuclear weapons free world and the complete elimination of nuclear weapons consistent with the highest priority accorded to nuclear disarmament,” India’s Permanent Representative to the UN, Syed Akbaruddin, said in his remarks at the high-level plenary meeting to commemorate and promote the International Day for the Total Elimination of Nuclear Weapons yesterday.

He said that this goal can be achieved through a step- by-step process underwritten by a universal commitment and an agreed global and non-discriminatory multilateral framework.
