Mike Pence

North Korea is the most dangerous and urgent threat to peace and security in the Asia-Pacific. The United States of America will always seek peace but under President Trump, the shield stands guard and the sword stands ready. Those who would challenge our resolve or readiness should know, we will defeat any attack and meet any use of conventional or nuclear weapons with an overwhelming and effective American response.feedback

Mike Pence

We will defeat any attack, and meet any use of conventional or nuclear weapons with an overwhelming and effective American response. The United States of America will always seek peace but under President (Donald) Trump, the shield stands guard and the sword stands ready. You here, on the deck of this great ship, are the physical manifestation of that alliance. The U.S. will strengthen its presence in the Asia-Pacific. Japan will assume a larger role and responsibility in our alliance in the years ahead. Both of our nations will continue to expand our cooperation for our common defense.feedback

Sharon Squassoni

This is basically a brutal dictator who doesn't really put a lot of stock in the safety, health, education of his people. It wouldn't surprise me at all he would pour resources into nuclear weapons that I hope will never be used.feedback

Ross Babbage

It's more than a bluff. A bluff suggests you're not serious. My understanding is that this U.S. administration is dead serious, it's been 40 years of trying to get the North Koreans to back away from the nuclear weapons.feedback

Michael Chertoff

When you look at what is emanating out of North Korea, I have sympathy for the argument that anything we can do to stop an unpredictable person from using nuclear weapons is worth trying.feedback

Mike Pence

Since 1992, the United States and our allies have stood together for a denuclearized Korean Peninsula. But the era of strategic patience is over. President Trump has made it clear that the patience of the United States and our allies in this region has run out and we want to see change. We want to see North Korea abandon its reckless path of the development of nuclear weapons, and also its continual use and testing of ballistic missiles is unacceptable. We hope to achieve this objective through peaceable means. But all options are on the table.feedback

Mike Pence

This morning's provocation from the North is just the latest reminder of the risks each one of you face each and every day in the defense of the freedom of the people of South Korea and the defense of America in this part of the world. We will defeat any attack and we will meet any use of conventional or nuclear weapons with an overwhelming and effective response. [A]ll options are on the table.feedback

Malcolm Rifkind

It could have failed because the system is not competent enough to make it work, but there is a very strong belief that the US - through cyber methods - has been successful on several occasions in interrupting these sorts of tests and making them fail. But don't get too excited by that, they've also had quite a lot of successful tests. They are an advanced country when it comes to their nuclear weapons programme. That still remains a fact - a hard fact.feedback

Nachman Shai

The White House urgently needs a history teacher. Ignorance is not acceptable. Hitler used chemical weapons of mass destruction in a large scale that human history hadn't seen until then, and since then. This a second failure of the White House recently, regarding the biggest tragedy that occurred to the Jewish people and took place in the 20th century.feedback

Nicolas Maduro

Venezuela never in its history has had biological, chemical, or nuclear weapons.feedback

Bruce Klingner

In North Korea's mind, the Syria attack will just show the necessity of nuclear weapons.feedback

Kim Jong-un

Once he sees that there is any kind of sign of a tank or an imminent threat from America, then he would use his nuclear weapons with ICBM. All of my family members were a little bit frightened, you know, on that day. But I always told them that we have to try to be as peaceful as possible. We should carry the normal faces and normal feelings so that our plan of defection should not be noticed by anyone in the embassy.feedback

James Stavridis

If Kim Jong Un has nuclear weapons and ICBMs, he can do anything. So, I think the world should be ready to deal with this kind of person.feedback

Ri Song Chol - United Nations

It is clearly an unreasonable argument that the U.S. cannot eliminate nuclear weapons because the DPRK will not abandon its nuclear weapons.feedback

Rah Jong-yil

The timing of this is no coincidence. Kim Jong-un clearly wants to overshadow the China-US summit and to underline the fact that he has nuclear weapons. For the North, nuclear weapons provide leverage over the rest of the world and Mr Kim is demonstrating that he cannot be ignored. As usual, the US and the West will issue condemnations and warnings, but there is a feeling that China is still not throwing its full weight behind sanctions and other pressures on the regime in Pyongyang.feedback

Rex W. Tillerson

The policy of strategic patience has ended. We are exploring a new range of diplomatic, security, and economic measures. All options are on the table. North Korea must understand that the only path to a secure, economically-prosperous future is to abandon its development of nuclear weapons, ballistic missiles, and other weapons of mass destruction.feedback

Toshiki Fujimori

Everybody thought I would die, yet I survived. It's a miracle. I am here at the U.N. asking for the abolition of nuclear weapons. . . . This is the mission I am given as a survivor.feedback

Alexis Lamek

In the current perilous context, considering in particular the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and their means of delivery, our countries continue to rely on nuclear deterrence for security and stability.feedback

John Park

North Korea has consistently been treated like a joke, but now the joke has nuclear weapons. If you deem Kim Jong Un to be irrational, then you're implicitly underestimating him. Look at the web of elite North Korean state trading companies. You can't be irrational or somehow crazy to consistently run this system to either make money off it or procure what you need for the nuclear weapons program. That objectively shows that there is a game plan, and a pretty consistently implemented game plan.feedback

Nigel Farage

I think that what's interesting is to see the way the Trump victory has been used by Mr Verhofstadt, by Mr Juncker saying, the Americans are leaving Europe, therefore we have to have our own European army, oh and they want nuclear weapons now as well.' Actually Mr Trump does not want to withdraw from Europe at all, he just wants NATO members to pay their fair share. I would view the full development of a European army with its own foreign policy and its own nuclear weapons actually as being something potentially quite dangerous.feedback

Louis Del Monte

Nanobots are the real concern about wiping out humanity because they can be weapons of mass destruction.feedback

Rex W. Tillerson

20 years of talks with North Korea have brought us to where we are today. It's important that the leadership of North Korea realize that their current pathway of nuclear weapons and escalating threats will not lead to their objective of security and economic development. That pathway can only be achieved by denuclearizing, giving up their weapons of mass destruction, and only then will we be prepared to engage with them in talks.feedback

William J. Perry

We have sanctioned them a hundred times, and it didn't stop developing nuclear weapons. They seem to be prepared to suffer economic deprivation for the people so they can achieve the preservation of the regime, which they think that nuclear weapons is going to do for them.feedback

Jeffrey Lewis

If they are not going to arm them, they need to say that. They need to make them absolutely clear. The thing the North Koreans are most afraid of is that we're going to kill Kim Jong-un in a decapitating strike and … that will strengthen their incentives to make sure that low level commanders will have the ability to use nuclear weapons. It will make the North Koreans even more jumpy and have a way itchier trigger finger.feedback

Paul Nuttall

There was an orchestrated smear campaign which I knew was coming from December which was suggesting that I wasn't actually at Hillsborough. Can I just put this on record Andrew, because this is really important? There was an orchestrated campaign which I knew was coming which was done by a political party. I'll leave it at that, okay? Yes. I am actually. Yes, I am, okay? They suggested that I wasn't actually at Hillsborough. It's not as if I have lied about weapons of mass destruction. It's not as if I have taken us into an illegal war.feedback

Paul Nuttall

I haven't lost a close, personal friend. I've lost someone who I know. It's not as if I have lied about weapons of mass destruction. It's not as if I have taken us into an illegal war. It's not as if I've been caught in a paedophile ring. We have had it in writing now from Douglas Carswell that he lobbied for Nigel Farage to get a knighthood. He has put it in writing, let's see what happens. It'll go to the national executive from here.feedback

Chang Yong-seok

North Korea was already under immense pressure over its efforts to develop nuclear weapons and intercontinental ballistic missiles, and also its human rights issues. Things will get even more complicated for Pyongyang if its chemical weapons issues are thrown into the mix.feedback

Evan Medeiros

North Korea doesn't want to give up its nuclear weapons. Nuclear weapons are key to its survival. Talks for North Korea are really about getting sanctions relief, playing for time, playing for advantage, trying to get sanctions lifted. And so if that's the case, I think Trump's tolerance and the tolerance of the Chinese may actually be somewhat limited.feedback

Donald J. Trump

We had Hillary Clinton give Russia 20 percent of the uranium in our country. You know what uranium is, right? It's a thing called nuclear weapons and other things. Like lots of things are done with uranium, including some bad things.feedback

Jens Stoltenberg - NATO

Compliance with arms control agreements is of great importance and especially when it comes to treaties covering nuclear weapons. Any non-compliance of Russia with the INF Treaty would be a serious concern for the alliance.feedback

Shi Yuanhua

Whether or not to abandon nuclear weapons concerns North Korea's core national interests and there is no way for China to get it to change its stance with a few words of persuasion, and it can't solve the problem by applying a ban on exports. The key for solving the problem lies in the hands of the U.S. If the U.S. is willing to sit and talk with North Korea, China will be happy to promote it.feedback

Jeong Joon-hee

These are serious military and security threats. Pyongyang has no intention of backing away from its goal to become a country with nuclear weapons.feedback

Donald J. Trump

To make sure that there would be enough Chinese nuclear weapons to survive a U.S. first strike and not be neutralized by U.S. missile defense, China may have an increasing incentive to adopt the launch-on-warning posture.feedback

James Mattis - US Marine Corps

We are taking defensive steps like deploying the highly effective THAAD anti-missile unit to the Republic of Korea to protect its people and our troops that stand with our ally. America's commitments to defending our allies and to upholding our extended deterrence guarantee remain ironclad: any attack on the United States, or our allies, will be defeated, and any use of nuclear weapons would be met with a response that would be effective and overwhelming.feedback

Steve Bannon

We're at the very beginning stages of a very brutal and bloody conflict... we are in an outright war against jihadist Islamic fascism... there is a major war brewing, a war that's already global. It's going global in scale, and today's technology, today's media, today's access to weapons of mass destruction, it's going to lead to a global conflict that I believe has to be confronted today.feedback

Rick Perry

As a former Air Force pilot during the days of the Cold War, I understand the deterrent value of our nuclear weapons systems, and the vital role they play in keeping the peace.feedback

Donald J. Trump

They have sanctions on Russia - let's see if we can make some good deals with Russia. For one thing, I think nuclear weapons should be way down and reduced very substantially, that's part of it. Beside that, he criticized Russia's intrusion into the Syrian conflict. According to the US President-elect, it led to a 'terrible humanitarian situation.feedback

Ash Carter

Their nuclear weapons and ballistic missile defence programs are a serious threat to us. We try to stay ahead of that and we are staying ahead of that with our missile defences to make sure we've upgraded their number, their type, so that we're sure we can defend ourselves.feedback

Jason Dworkin

If you have something like 50 years, that could deflect it enough, and it might be a whole lot simpler than sending up nuclear weapons.feedback

Alexei Pushkov

All the accusations against Russia are based on 'confidence' and suppositions. The USA in the same way was confident about (Iraqi leader Saddam) Hussein having weapons of mass destruction.feedback

Donald J. Trump

It's time for our country to move on to bigger and better things. Nevertheless, in the interest of our country and its great people, I will meet with leaders of the intelligence community next week in order to be updated on the facts of this situation. These are the same people that said Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction. I think it's just another excuse. I don't believe it. No, I don't believe it at all.feedback

Joseph Cirincione

This is how arms races begin - with a battle of words. Neither side needs to be spending hundreds of billions of dollars on nuclear weapons we don't need.feedback

Mitch McConnell

These are the same people that said Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction.feedback

Benjamin Netanyahu

Israel is committed to preventing Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons. That has not changed and will not change. As far as President-elect Trump, I look forward to speaking to him about what to do about this bad deal.feedback

Benjamin Netanyahu

I oppose the deal because it doesn't prevent Iran from getting nukes, it paves the way for Iran to get nuclear weapons. The problem isn't so much that Iran will break the deal but that Iran will keep it.feedback

Benjamin Netanyahu

The problem isn't so much that Iran will break the deal, but that Iran will keep it because it just can walk in within a decade, and even less ... to industrial-scale enrichment of uranium to make the core of an arsenal of nuclear weapons. So the problem how to deal with this deal is something that I will discuss with ... President Trump when he takes office.feedback

Hans M. Kristensen

He has made various vague statements that indicate that he believes in a strong military but doesn't seem to know much about nuclear forces and issues, is unconcerned about nuclear proliferation, yet also seems impressed by the 'hugeness' of nuclear weapons.feedback

Steven Aftergood

The range of unilateral presidential authority is astonishingly broad. If you look at the presidential policy directives issued by Obama, they cover topics as diverse as biological weapons, nuclear weapons policy, intelligence surveillance policy, cyber operations, maritime security, arms-transfer policy, and on and on. And because it is based on presidential authority, it can also be revised and reshaped by a new president.feedback

Donald J. Trump

The (at)nytimes states today that DJT believes 'more countries should acquire nuclear weapons.' How dishonest are they. I never said this!feedback

Faisal Al Yafai

I am unconvinced. I think he actually believes his rhetoric. It's quite worrying that he doesn't seem to understand how global politics works. For example you don't go around saying 'if our allies were threatened we wouldn't intervene, why can't they build their own nuclear weapons?feedback

Ash Carter

The United States is reaffirming its ironclad commitment to defend South Korea with our extended deterrence capabilities. Make no mistake. Any attack on American or our allies will not only be defeated, but any use of nuclear weapons will be met with an overwhelming and effective response.feedback

Hillary Clinton

He has advocated more countries getting them. Japan, Korea, even Saudi Arabia. He's said if we have them, why don't we use them which I think is terrifying. But here's the deal. The bottom line on nuclear weapons is that when the president gives the order, it must be followed.feedback

Donald J. Trump

All I said is that we have to renegotiate these agreements because our country cannot afford to defend Saudi Arabia, Japan, Germany, South Korea and many other places, we cannot continue to afford…She took that as saying nuclear weapons.feedback

Viktor Poznikhir

The illusion of invulnerability and impunity under the missile defense umbrella would encourage Washington to take unilateral steps in dealing with global and regional issues. That can objectively lead to lowering the threshold of nuclear weapons use to pre-empt the enemy's action.feedback

Hillary Clinton

A man you can bait with a tweet is not a man we can trust with nuclear weapons.feedback

Mark Halperin - MSNBC

So you would – you would rule out the possibility of using, right, nuclear weapons against ISIS?feedback

Joseph Cirincione

Donald Trump is very cavalier about how he talks about nuclear weapons. He treats them as if they are another tool in the toolbox.feedback

Shen Dingli

I think any idea to ask North Korea to abandon nuclear weapons would fail, and any idea to ask South Korea to abandon THAAD would fail.feedback

Jack Lew - U.S Treasury

North Korea is an enormous challenge, and we will do everything we can to keep the pressure on them. We will continue to sharpen financial tools as we can. The goal is to change the [North Korean nuclear weapons] policy.feedback

Barack Obama

Nuclear weapons must be prohibited in order to pursue stability and peace in East Asia.feedback

Timothy Stafford

The North Koreans have already developed their ability to detonate nuclear weapons. What they've yet to perfect are the missiles capable of carrying them.feedback

Hillary Clinton

Imagine him in the Oval Office facing a real crisis. A man you can bait with a tweet is not a man we can trust with nuclear weapons.feedback

James Carder

Cyber exploits offer stunning comparisons to weapons of mass destruction. They may be readily available and easily obtainable yet possess the ability to cripple the critical infrastructure and resources, such as power, water and food supplies of an entire nation.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Iraq is in chaos, Iran is on the path to nuclear weapons, Syria is engulfed in a civil war, and a refugee crisis now threatens the West. After 15 years of wars in the Middle East, after trillions of dollars spent and thousands of lives lost, the situation is worse than it has ever been before. This is the legacy of Hillary Clinton: death, destruction, terrorism and weakness.feedback

Jeremy Corbyn

If we want a nuclear weapons-free world, this is an opportunity where we can start down that road.feedback

Juozas Olekas

I cannot exclude that tactical nuclear weapons already exist in the Kaliningrad region.feedback

Tony Blair

The threat from Saddam Hussein and weapons of mass destruction, chemical, biological, potentially nuclear weapon's capability, that threat is real. So the purpose of our discussion today is to work out the right strategy for dealing with this. Because deal we must.feedback

Shinzo Abe

I am proud the president will visit Hiroshima, where in 1945 the United States dropped the first of two nuclear weapons to end the Second World War. President Obama has set an important precedent for future commanders in chief as well as other world leaders through his words, actions and policies against nuclear weapons proliferation.feedback

Rosen Plevneliev

Nations should not be strong with their armies of soldiers and nuclear weapons. In the 21st century nations should be strong with the success of the people.feedback

John Kerry

Everyone in the world should see and feel the power of this memorial. It is a stark, harsh, compelling reminder not only of our obligation to end the threat of nuclear weapons, but to rededicate all our effort to avoid war itself. War must be the last resort -- never the first choice. This memorial compels us all to redouble our efforts to change the world, to find peace and build the future so yearned for by citizens everywhere.feedback

Barack Obama

Today, I invited all the nations represented at this summit to join a broader discussion among our intelligence and security services on how we can improve information sharing within and among our nations to prevent all manner of terrorist attacks, especially those that might involve weapons of mass destruction.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Well, first of all, he united the pro-choice and pro-life groups, which I don't know how he did that. But think about this: he said he would use nuclear weapons, maybe in Europe, that we would leave Nato, he would have a supreme court justice who would have to investigate Hillary's emails, that would be one of the requirements for being a justice. Then he said we should destroy the Geneva conventions.feedback

Josh Earnest

Mr. Trump's suggestion that somehow we should encourage our allies in South Korea to develop nuclear weapons is directly contrary to a policy that the United States has long pursued and that the international community has long supported.feedback

Samantha Power - United Nations

It is no coincidence that the North Korean government would rather grow its nuclear weapons program than grow its own children.feedback

Samantha Power - United Nations

The chronic suffering of the people of North Korea is the direct result of the choices made by the DPRK government, a government that has consistently prioritized its nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs over providing for the most basic needs of its own people. The North Korean government would rather grow its nuclear weapons program than grow its own children.feedback

Nicola Sturgeon

I don't want to see Faslane close. I have long argued Faslane should be a conventional naval base, and of course, there needs to be investment and diversification in making sure that we create alternative jobs for people who currently work in Trident nuclear weapons. But you know we need to make sure that we invest scarce resources in things that create good jobs and improve our public services.feedback

Benjamin Netanyahu

The international community must impose severe and clear sanctions against any violation (by Iran). Without our efforts leading the sanctions and preventing Iran's nuclear plan, Iran would have possessed nuclear weapons a long time ago. Israel's policy was and remains as it was: not to allow Iran to obtain nuclear weapons.feedback

Jens Stoltenberg - NATO

Because we very much believe that nuclear weapons has to be dealt with in a very cautious, predictable way and for us nuclear weapons are part of the deterrence.feedback

Shinzo Abe

I believe that by visiting Hiroshima, understanding the reality of radiation exposure, and voicing his opinions there, President Obama is going to provide a strong push for achieving a world devoid of nuclear weapons.feedback

Gabrielle Price

These actions, and North Korea's continued pursuit of ballistic missile and nuclear weapons capabilities, pose a significant threat to the United States, our allies, and to the stability of the greater Asia-Pacific.feedback

Barack Obama

With this deal, we cut off every single one of Iran's pathways to a nuclear weapons programme.feedback

Noam Chomsky

I'm in favour of the Iran negotiations but they are profoundly flawed. There are two states that rampage in the middle east carrying out aggressions, violence, terrorist acts, illegal acts, constantly. They're both huge nuclear weapon states and their nuclear armorments. And their nuclear weapons are not being considered.feedback

Benjamin Netanyahu

It is a bad deal, a very bad deal that leaves Iran in possession of the capability of arming itself with nuclear weapons, that fills its coffers with a lot of money and enables it to continue its terrorism and aggression in the Middle East.feedback

Benjamin Netanyahu

We will continue to take action and lead the international effort against Iran arming itself with nuclear weapons. We will do everything and take every action to thwart a bad and dangerous agreement that would cloud the future and the security of the State of Israel.feedback

Benjamin Netanyahu

I would like to discuss the ways to prevent Iran from getting nuclear weapons capability. I believe that this is the greatest challenge to the security of the world.feedback

Mark Regev

The combination of a regime with a very radical agenda, together with a distorted sense of reality, as is clearly indicated by the statements we heard today, put together with nuclear weapons, I think that's a combination, a dangerous combination, that no-one in the international community can accept.feedback

Barack Obama

After a comprehensive review I have determined that we can ensure the security of America and our allies, and maintain a strong and credible strategic deterrent, while reducing our deployed strategic nuclear weapons by up to one third.feedback

Ban Ki-moon - United Nations

The Iranian nuclear issue has great implications for peace and stability as well as the non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. I urge again that the Iranian government should fully comply with the Security Council as soon as possible.feedback

Alia Shgar Soltanie

If the Israelis (had not been) the obstacle, we (would) have had a nuclear weapons free zone in the Middle East for the last 30 years. Therefore this is the main obstacle.feedback

David Albright

Is this a smoking gun? Its's close to a smoking gun but it's still not enought to that Iran has an active nuclear weapons programme.feedback

Condoleezza Rice

What I do think it is very important that everyone takes stock of the leverage that we have to get North Korea to return to the six-party talks and negotiate seriously the dismantlement of its nuclear weapons program.feedback

George W. Bush

The need for missile defence in Europe is real and I believe it's urgent. Iran is pursuing the technology that could be used to produce nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles have increasing range that could deliver them.feedback

John Bolton

We hope that Iran makes the strategic decision that the pursuit of programmes of weapons of mass destruction makes it less and not more secure.feedback

Benjamin Netanyahu

Rohani doesn't sound like Ahmadinejad but when it comes to Iran's nuclear weapons program the only difference between them is this: Ahmadinejad was a wolf in wolf's clothing. Rohani is a wolf in sheep's clothing. A wolf who thinks he can pull the wool over the eyes of the international community.feedback

Colin Powell

What you will see is an accumulation of facts and disturbing patterns of behaviour. Saddam Hussein and his regime are concealing their efforts to produce more weapons of mass destruction.feedback

Fariba Mavaddat

A deal between Iran and the so called P5+1 is still possible provided that they overcome two massive challenges of satisfying hardliners on both sides, and reassuring Israel that Iran is not after nuclear weapons.feedback

Anders Fogh Rasmussen - NATO

But on the other hand, and that is the other track, we have to develop a practical cooperation in areas where we share interests with Russia, for instance, as regards Afghanistan, counter-terrorism, counter proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, counter piracy and, I would add to this, also missile defence.feedback

Maeng Cheon-Soo

We can't tolerate North Korea's nuclear weapons. We're here to urge the people of South Korea to work together to completely denuclearise the North.feedback

Stephen Hadley

The (intelligence community) has high confidence, high confidence, that Iran had a covert nuclear weapons programme, that it has never acknowledged and continues to deny. The IC has high confidence, that Iran halted its covert nuclear weapons programme in the fall of 2003, and they have moderate confidence that it had not restarted that programme as of mid-2007.feedback

Barack Obama

The United States will take concrete steps towards a world without nuclear weapons. To put an end to cold war thinking we will reduce the role of nuclear weapons in our national security strategy and urge others to do the same.feedback

Ali Asghar Soltanieh

The second point concerns the accusations made by the Agency. It said that Iran wanted to focus on pre-2003 studies to develop nuclear weapons. We have said several times that to make such accusations, they must first provide evidence.feedback

James Franey - Euronews

First, it is not legally binding, relying on the goodwill of all the nations involved. And another key question is just how far-reaching the deal is when Russia, the country with the largest stockpile of nuclear weapons in the world, has refused to sign up.feedback

Bashar al-Assad

We are going to speak with the Iranian leaders. As far as we know, there is no nuclear military programme. We are against all weapons of mass destruction in the Middle East.feedback

Park Geun-hye

North Korea should drop its nuclear weapons, missiles, provocations and threats, and become a responsible member of international society. This is the only way the North can survive.feedback

Ali Akbar Salehi

You see we do not recognise the state of Israel, but we have never ever spoken of obliterating people. When we said, when I said when it comes to using weapons of mass destruction, we have completely denied ourselves this right.feedback

Ali Akbar Salehi

The other aspect, when we look at it from the pragmatic point of view, suppose Iran develops one or two, three or four rudimentary bombs, can it really compete with a country like the US in this regard? Can it be on par with any other country that has been in this domain of developing nuclear weapons for decades? Certainly, that will not be a deterrent for us because with our neighbours we have no problem.feedback

Gregory Schulte - International Atomic Energy Agency

Rather than acting to regain the world's confidence, Iran's leaders are moving ahead brazenly with enrichment, continuing their determined step-by-step effort to acquire the material, technology and know-how to produce nuclear weapons.feedback

Konstantin Kosachyov

We cannot understand how this membership of NATO can provide better opportunities for combating international terrorism, for combating the proliferation of nuclear weapons, for facing all other challenges and threats, which we have as common challenges and threats.feedback

George W. Bush

America did not ask for this war, and every American wishes it were over. So do I. But the war is not over and it will not be over until either we or the extremists emerge victorious. If we do not defeat these enemies now, we will leave our children to face a Middle East overrun by terrorist states and radical dictators armed with nuclear weapons. We are in a war that will set the course for this new century, and determine the destiny of millions across the world.feedback

Benjamin Netanyahu

I believe that it's time for the rest of the world to wake up. The great challenges that we face, the great danger to the world, is not from Jews building in our ancestral capital in Jerusalem, it's from nuclear weapons in Iran, those weapons that are built in Iran.feedback

Barack Obama

American leadership can also be seen in the effort to secure the worst weapons of war. The Iranian government now faces tougher sanctions, tighter sanctions then ever before. And on the Korean peninsula, we stand with our allies South Korea and insist that North Korea keeps its commitment to abandon nuclear weapons.feedback

Hassan Rouhani

We have not thought of making weapons of mass destruction and we are not thinking of it.feedback

Vladimir Putin

If they have proof they have to show it. Everybody has seen the US Secretary of State showing at the UN Security Council the proof of Iraq having weapons of mass destruction. He showed then a tube with a substance that could well have been washing powder. To say something is one thing, to provide proof is another.feedback

Taro Aso

The sufferings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki shall not be repeated. We must devote ourselves to the abolition of nuclear weapons and the realisation of world peace.feedback

Vladimir Putin

The latest steps by Iran convince Russia that Iran indeed does not intend to produce nuclear weapons and we will continue to develop relations in all sectors, including peaceful atomic energy. We hope Iran will strictly stick to all agreements with Russia or the international community.feedback

Paul Ivan

Well the countries that have nuclear weapons seem to believe they have to keep them, especially as other countries in the world are improving and upgrading their systems. It's part of the military tools. At the same I believe that NATO will remain the backbone of European security at least in what concerns the security of Europe.feedback

Barack Obama

In many ways, nuclear weapons represent both the darkest days of the Cold War, and the most troubling threats of our time. Today, we have taken another step forward in leaving behind the legacy of the twentieth century while building a more secure future for our children.feedback

Alex Salmond

If the parliament can run education, then why can't it run the economy? If it can be trusted to run the health service, then why can't it represent Scotland internationally? If it can be trusted to protect our old people, then why can't we protect the country, and do so without the obscenity of nuclear weapons?feedback

Barack Obama

North Korea's continued pursuit of nuclear weapons is a path that leads only to more isolation.feedback

Benjamin Netanyahu

Above all, they deceive themselves into believing that Iran is giving up its goal of developing nuclear weapons. I heard a few faint condemnations of Iran from the international community after we intercepted this murderous shipment.feedback
