In a personal televised statement, Mr Kellenberger, appeals to states to seize a historic opportunity to end the era of nuclear weapons. He recalls the testimony of ICRC delegate Marcel Junod, the first foreign doctor to bring assistance to victims of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima in 1945. Nuclear weapons are unique in their destructive power, causing unspeakable human suffering. The world cannot wait to end this grave threat to future generations and the survival of humanity.
