No obstacles for creating a free market zone in Central Asia, says UN Under Secretary General

At the present time there are no insurmountable obstacles in Central Asia for creating a zone free from nuclear weapons, and the United Nations intends to do everything possible to speed up this process, said UN Under Secretary General for disarmament Jayantha Dhanapal in Bishkek on Tuesday.

According to Jayantha Dhanapal, in case a free nuclear zone is created in Central Asia, none of the countries in the world under any pretext will be able to deploy weapons of mass destruction in the region. To discuss this problem with the heads of five countries in the Central Asian region - Tajikistan, Kirghizia, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and Turkmenia - is the main aim of his present visit.

The spokesman for the United Nations also underscored that the creation of zones free from nuclear weapons in as many as possible regions of the world and the slowing down of the arms race on all the continents are the main tasks of the United Nations. At the present time there are four similar zones - in Africa, Latin America, South East and South Asia, and the United Nations will do its utmost to speed up the process of creating the fifth one - in Central Asia.

According to the data of the United Nations, last year all together 800 billion US dollars were spent on purchasing armaments. This figure has reached such a high mark for the first time after the end of the Cold War.

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?
