WITH great hope, the Muslim Youth Movement Malaysia (Abim) along with international communities
celebrated the enforcement of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW) on Jan 22.
TPNW is a result of a mutual agreement arising from several international conferences and dialogues, including the three conferences on the Humanitarian Impact of Nuclear Weapons in Oslo (March 2013), Nayarit (February 2014) and Vienna (December 2014).
Abim is confident that the enforcement of the TPNW will have a positive impact on global peace, particularly in saving human lives from the devastation of war involving nuclear weapons.
At the same time, Abim applauds the commitment shown by Malaysia in becoming the 46th country to ratify the treaty on Sept 30,2020.
Apart from the TPNW, Malaysia has ratified almost all international treaties related to disarmament, arms control and non-proliferation of nuclear weapons. This is a commitment by Malaysia as a proponent of a global peace mission.
May all international citizens regardless of colour, religion, and boundary of states live together in peace and enjoy their rights to a better quality of life.
MUHAMMAD FAISAL ABDUL AZIZ , President, Muslim Youth Movement Malaysia (Abim)
