car_bombaNayarit, Mexico – States must ensure that nuclear weapons are never used again, according to the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, which will take this message to the Second Conference on the Humanitarian Impact of Nuclear Weapons, in Nayarit, Mexico, on 13 and 14 February 2014.

The movement calls upon states, on the basis of their existing obligations, to prohibit and eliminate nuclear weapons once and for all, because of the weapons’ catastrophic humanitarian consequences.

Sastanak u Nayaritu prati Konferenciju u Oslu 2013. godine, na kojoj su po prvi puta vlade zajedno s međunarodnim organizacijama i organizacijama civilnog društva razgovarale o humanitarnim posljedicama nuklearnog oružja. Konferencija u Oslu između ostalog je naglasila da će žrtve i štete u neposrednoj eksploziji nakon nuklearne eksplozije biti toliko obimne da bi bilo gotovo nemoguće pružiti odgovarajuću pomoć.

“In Hiroshima in August 1945, the Japanese Red Cross and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) came face to face with the grim reality of nuclear weapons. The destructive power of these weapons has only grown since then,” said Christine Beerli, vice-president of the ICRC, who spoke at the opening ceremony of the two-day conference. “The debate about nuclear weapons must be shaped by a full grasp of the short-, medium- and long-term consequences of their use. We welcome the fact that states are expanding the discourse on nuclear weapons beyond military and security interests to focus on such essential issues this week.”

Neposredno uoči konferencije Nayarit, 21 nacionalno društvo Crvenog križa i Crvenog polumjeseca iz Amerike, Kariba, Afrike, Europe, Bliskog Istoka, Azije i Tihog oceana sastalo se kako bi razgovaralo o načinima na koje bi se skrenula pažnja na zabrinutost Pokreta i položaj o nuklearnom oružju.

“The humanitarian consequences following a nuclear explosion would cause unprecedented devastation. Any rescue or relief operation undertaken by the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement for those affected would be virtually impossible. The inability to ensure safe access for rescue teams would further complicate relief operations for the affected populations,” said Fernando Suinaga, Mexican Red Cross president and member of the movement in Nayarit.

Na svojim statutarnim sastancima održanim u Sydneyu prošlog studenog, Crveni križ i Crveni polumjesec su, kroz četverogodišnji akcijski plan, obnovili svoje opredjeljenje za širenje kontakata s vladama, donosiocima odluka i drugima o humanitarnim i pravnim pitanjima povezanim s nuklearnim oružjem.

“We hope the lessons learned from Hiroshima and the new insights gained from the Oslo and Nayarit meetings will feed into the reflections of States as they consider how best to advance nuclear disarmament in the 21st century,” added Beerli.
