He said any intentional, unintentional or miscalculated use of nuclear weapons seriously threatened global peace and security.

Non-nuclear weapon states, especially those that have fulfilled their NPT obligations, still live in fear despite the treaty is five decades old.

The UNSC expressed its determination to strive to reach the targets set out in the treaty towards full nuclear non-proliferation and ensuring the use of nuclear energy for peaceful purposes only.

Participants also reaffirmed the common responsibility of NPT member states for the future of the treaty.

The NPT was ratified by 190 countries and has been widely welcomed worldwide.
