Experts urge immediate action to counter growing risk of global nuclear war

Experts have warned that in order to counter the increasing risk of nuclear war, immediate action is needed to be taken.



London: Experts have warned that in order to counter the increasing risk of nuclear war, immediate action is needed to be taken.

According to The Independent, ahead of the Vienna Conference on the Humanitarian Impact of Nuclear Weapons, which starts today, the experts wrote in a letter that the danger of such a conflict was "underestimated or insufficiently understood" by world leaders.

The letter addressed to Sebastian Kurz, Austria`s Minister for Foreign Affairs read that "tension between nuclear-armed states and alliances in the Euro-Atlantic area and in both South and East Asia remain ripe with the potential for military miscalculation and escalation."

The experts expressed fear that because of increasing tensions across the world, a lot of nuclear weapons in the world remain ready to launch on short notice, thereby greatly increasing the chances of an accident.

The experts further stated in the letter the fact gave leaders faced with an imminent potential threat an insufficient amount of time to communicate with each other and act with prudence.
