Trump Kim Summit: ICAN launches roadmap to denuclearise the Korean Peninsula

June 11, 2018

Tuesday’s historic summit has captured the eyes and hopes of the world, but whether it will lead to the denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula remains to be seen. ICAN is in Singapore to present a roadmap – a five step plan- to make such peace a reality, and remind leaders present and watching that they can and must take action for a world free of nuclear weapons.

If Trump and Kim really want tomorrow’s summit to do more than just capture the world’s attention, they must embark on a long-term plan to real and lasting peace. Denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula is possible, and can be achieved through following five steps:

  1. Recognize the risk of nuclear use and the unacceptable humanitarian consequences of such use
  2. Reject nuclear weapons by joining the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW)
  3. Remove North Korea’s nuclear weapons through a verifiable and irreversible plan
  4. Ratify the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty
  5. Rejoin the NPT and world community
