Nuclear Weapons Worldwide

The aim of global nuclear disarmament, first declared in 1946 and reiterated since, has patently not been achieved. Even though global stocks of nuclear weapons are at their lowest level in over 50 years, there are still an estimated 15 400 nuclear weapons worldwide, many on high-alert status. The overall number of nuclear weapons worldwide has decreased – from a peak of 70 000 in the mid-1980s; however, all States possessing nuclear weapons are currently investing vast sums in modernising their nuclear arsenals and delivery systems, raising fears of a new arms-race.
