Foreign ministers of the G7 group of industrial countries have called for a world without nuclear weapons.
In their final declaration at Hiroshima meeting in Japan, the top diplomats cited deteriorating security conditions in Syria, Ukraine and particularly the Korean Peninsula as key challenges to achieving the goal.
The declaration comes as some of the G7 member states including the US and Britain possess huge nuclear stockpiles. Nuclear weapons states have refused to destroy or reduce their stocks of nuclear weapons despite repeated promises to do so. Some of them are spending billions of dollars to upgrade their deadly weapons.
