The world is experiencing troubling times. We have the COVID-19 pandemic, a global cost living crisis, a changing climate, and record heat waves. The United Nations has warned an increasing danger - nuclear annihilation. UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has warned that one small mistake could lead to a nuclear war. Mr Guterres warned that international tensions were "reaching new highs". He pointed the Ukraine War, the Korean peninsula, and the Middle East as possible flashpoints. He said, "we have been extraordinarily lucky so far" to have avoided nuclear conflict. He said: "Luck is not a strategy. Nor is it a shield geopolitical tensions boiling over nuclear conflict."

Guterres painted a picture a world close to war. He said the danger level is its highest since the Cold War. He warned that: "Humanity is just one misunderstanding, one miscalculation from nuclear annihilation." Guterres was speaking a conference countries signed to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. This started 1968. He said the conference was "a chance to strengthen" the Treaty and "make it fit the worrying world around us". He added: "Eliminating nuclear weapons is the only guarantee that they will never be used." He said: "Almost 13,000 nuclear weapons are now being held arsenals around the a time when the risks proliferation are growing."
