GSI E-Alert: Extraordinary Week at the United Nations

Dear friends,

This has been an historic week at the United Nations. The US President chairing a summit of the Security Council and its adoption of a far reaching resolution on nuclear disarmament and non-proliferation is extraordinary. Moreover, it is indicative that we are on the road towards a safer planet.

The Global Security Institute offers this special e-alert that we hope you find informative, including a Huffington Post op/ed by Jonathan Granoff and Rhianna Kreger, articles by Tyler-Wigg Stevenson and Jim Wurst, links to the statements by world leaders and the historic documents that were adopted this week.
