IPPNW letter urges Korean and US leaders to prevent use of nuclear weapons:

A 5 April 2013 letter from IPPNWi Co-Presidents - including MAPW's Tilman Ruff - to the leaders of North and South Korea and the USA, urging them to prevent the use of nuclear weapons. The letter reminds the leaders of the catastrophic humanitarian consequences of nuclear weapons, and the bankruptcy of the concept of nuclear deterrence. It notes the importance of a treaty that bans and eliminates nuclear weapons, and calls for and end to inflammatory behaviour and for the re-opening of diplomatic channels.
