Kofi Annan Bemoans Us Decision To Abrogate Abm Treaty

UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan regrets Washington's unilateral decision to withdraw from the 1972-vintage ABM (Anti-Ballistic Missile) Treaty. Annan's statement, which circulated at UN headquarters here today, notes that the ABM Treaty had served as a corner-stone of global peace, security and strategic stability for many consecutive years. According to Annan, the White House decision can trigger off an arms race, a missile race, in the first place. Annan called on the international community to elaborate legally binding initiatives for the sake of avoiding such undesirable consequences; moreover, the proposed initiatives should not be abrogated.

On December 10, 1948 the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly, its thirty articles enshrining basic and fundamental rights guaranteeing dignity of the human person and equality for all, regardless of race, color, creed or gender. A pipe dream?
