Gorbachev warns world in ‘colossal’ danger from nuclear weapons via France 24

Former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev says the world is in “colossal” danger from nuclear weapons held by global powers amid continued tensions since the end of the Cold War.

The last head of the Soviet Union won the 1990 Nobel Peace Prize for negotiating a historic nuclear arms reduction treaty with Ronald Reagan that US President Donald Trump pulled out of this year.


The 88-year-old told the BBC in Moscow that the world was not safe despite past arms limitation efforts.

“While there are weapons of mass destruction, and especially nuclear ones, it is (in) colossal danger,” he said in an interview aired Monday.
“All people have to clearly state — all people — that nuclear weapons must be destroyed. This way, we will be saving ourselves and the planet.”
