Scotland seeks world backing for banning nuclear weapons

 

Posted by Abolition, 21st Oct 2007 | Category: Nuclear Weapon News

Alex Salmond has made a major bid to win international backing for his government’s campaign to rid Scotland of nuclear weapons, the Sunday Herald can reveal.

The First Minister has written to 122 countries highlighting the nation’s opposition to the deployment of Trident nuclear warheads on the Clyde, and his determination to try and block the UK government’s decision to replace Trident over the next few decades.

Salmond is also asking countries to support a request for Scotland to be given observer status at future meetings of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), the world’s main barrier to nuclear mayhem.
