In the second session of Disarmament and International Security Committee, the delegate of Philippines stated that “Larger countries use of use of nuclear weapons”. China, the UK and South Africa all hold the opinion that the focus should be on reducing new production of nuclear weapons instead of limiting what we have now. It means that the nuclear weapons the world have now should be kept for protecting people in the war but new nuclear weapons should be prohibited from being developed.
