Testimony to the New York City Council Hearing on Resolution 0976 – 2019 and INT 1621 – 2019,
January 28, 2019.

Dear New York City Council,

In these times of uncertainty and upheaval in many parts of the world, it is vitally important that ernest and concerted efforts are made to resolve problems through dialogue and diplomacy. We welcome such initiative of the NY City Council to abolish nuclear weapons. Such resolutions send a powerful message and recognition of the urgency of putting an end to the threat that these weapons pose to humanity.

His Holiness the Dalai Lama has for decades, advocated non proliferation of nuclear weapons and eventual elimination, due to its imminent danger to humanity.

We hope to see vigorous efforts being made to achieve a world without nuclear weapons.
