Ah, bila dunia sudah bebas dari senjata nuklir, lalu bebas dari segala senjata
dan bebas militer..
Lalu bebas dari Allah, dari Tuhan dan dari hanti blau serta dedemit dan orang
Obama promotes nuclear-free world
Barack Obama has outlined his vision of a world free of nuclear weapons in a
major speech in Europe.
The US president called for a global summit on nuclear security and the
forging of new partnerships to prevent the spread of nuclear weapons.
He said he hoped to negotiate a new treaty to end the production of fissile
materials for nuclear weapons.
Although his nuclear goals might not be realised in his lifetime, he said he
would strive to achieve them.
Mr Obama said that as long as Iran continued to pose a potential
nuclear threat, the US would continue to work on a controversial
missile defence shield, parts of which would be stationed in Poland and
the Czech Republic.
He was speaking ahead of a meeting with EU leaders in
the Czech capital, Prague, hours after North Korea launched a rocket
despite international warnings.
Mr Obama condemned the launch, saying the provocation underscored the need for
"Now's the time for a strong international response and North Korea
must know that the path to security will never come through illegal
weapons," he said.
Extermination of cities
Speaking to a 20,000-strong crowd in front of Prague's historic castle,
Mr Obama said the US had a moral responsibility to act in ridding the
world of nuclear weapons.
"The existence of thousands of nuclear weapons is the most dangerous legacy of
the Cold War," he said.

* 5 April: Obama in Prague for US-EU summit
* 6-7 April: Obama visits Turkey
"Today the Cold War has disappeared but thousands of weapons have not."
He pledged to reduce the US nuclear stockpile, and urged others to do the same.
But as long as a nuclear threat existed, the US would retain its
nuclear capability, although it would work to reduce its arsenal.
He said his administration would work to bring the
Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty (CTBT) into force in order to achieve a
global ban on nuclear testing.
The agreement would ban all nuclear explosions for any
purpose, but cannot currently come into effect as nuclear powers such
as the US and China have not ratified it, and India and Pakistan have
not signed it.
Mr Obama announced a new effort to secure sensitive
nuclear material within four years and break down the black market in
the trade in illicit weapons.
"Even with the Cold War over, the spread of nuclear
weapons or the theft of nuclear material could lead to the
extermination of any city on the planet," Mr Obama said.
He said he would negotiate a new strategic arms reduction treaty with Russia by
the end of this year.
The speech came days after he and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev -
meeting on the sidelines of the G20 summit in London - agreed to reopen
negotiations about reducing nuclear warheads.
“ As long as the threat from Iran exists, we will go forward with a missile
defence system ”

They aim to produce a new arms control treaty to replace the Strategic
Arms Reduction Treaty (Start) that expires at the end of the year.
Under Mr Obama's predecessor, George W Bush, tensions
arose between the two sides over the US plan for a missile defence
shield, parts of which would be stationed in Poland and the Czech
The new US administration is currently reviewing the
plans, which are meant to counter nuclear attacks from countries like
Iran and North Korea, but which Moscow sees as a threat.
Mr Obama said his administration would also seek to
engage with Iran, presenting Tehran with a choice between getting
access to peaceful nuclear energy, or risking isolation with its
current nuclear strategy, which he said posed a clear threat.
"As long as the threat from Iran exists, we will go forward with a missile
defence system," he said.
His wide-ranging speech - which also touched on the need for a united
approach to combat the global financial crisis and climate change - was
rapturously received by the crowd.
Mr Obama is to meet EU leaders to discuss issues such as climate change and
He will then fly to Turkey for the final stop of his European tour.
The US president arrived in Prague late on Saturday from the Nato
summit in Strasbourg, where he secured pledges from European nations to
send more troops to Afghanistan to provide security for elections in
Ahead of his arrival several hundred people gathered in Prague to protest
against the missile shield.
Mr Obama's first trip to Eastern Europe, 20 years after the end of the
Cold War, was supposed to be the highlight of the Czech presidency of
But his official engagements there have been scaled
down in the wake of Prime Minister Mirek Topolanek's resignation late
last month, after losing a no-confidence motion.
Mr Topolanek - who has also described Mr Obama's
stimulus plan as "the road to hell" - will remain in office until a new
cabinet is appointed or fresh elections are held.
