IPPNW and Pugwash Launch Appeal to Presidents Biden and Putin

An Appeal to Presidents Vladimir Putin and Joseph Biden

In advance of the first summit between Presidents Vladimir Putin and Joseph Biden in Geneva on June 16, a group of more than 30 American and Russian organizations, international nuclear policy experts, and former senior officials have issued an appeal to the two Presidents calling upon them to take steps to reduce and eliminate the threat of nuclear war.

Ira Helfand, past president of the International Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War, said: "It is urgent that President Biden and President Putin reaffirm the ground-breaking statement issued by Gorbachev and Reagan in 1985 that a nuclear war can not be won and must never be fought.'"

In the statement, delivered on June 7, the signatories urge the two presidents to:
"Commit to a bilateral strategic dialogue that is regular, frequent, comprehensive and result oriented leading to further reduction of the nuclear risk hanging over the world and to the re-discovery of the road to a world free of nuclear weapons."
