Since 2013, 26 September has been, by decision of the UN General Assembly, the International Day for the Total Elimination of Nuclear Weapons.

Reputable scientists warn that the explosion of only one percent of today's deployed nuclear weapons in the world would amount to about 4000 times the energy released by the US atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima in 1945.

On 21 September, International Day of Peace, the Portuguese Council for Peace and Cooperation (CPPC) calls for commitment and mobilization in defense of the principles embodied in the United Nations Charter and the Constitution of the Portuguese Republic, such as sovereignty and the rights of peoples, the sovereign equality of states, the peaceful and negotiated settlement of international conflicts, the non-use of force or the threat of the use of force in international relations, the general simultaneous and controlled disarmament.

At the 80th anniversary of the beginning of World War II, the Portuguese Council for Peace and Cooperation recalls the brutal consequences of what was the most violent and bloody military conflict in history, triggered by Nazi Germany, fascist Italy and militaristic Japan, responsible for the loss of more than 50 million lives and tens of millions of injured.

It is with concern that the Portuguese Council for Peace and Cooperation (CPPC) is following the path that the European Union (EU) has been treading in order to create conditions to criminalise solidarity with the Palestinian cause, while turning a blind eye on the illegalities and crimes of the Israeli regime against the Palestinian people.

The Portuguese Council for Peace and Cooperation (CPPC) expresses its deep concern with the growing military tension in the Persian Gulf promoted by the United States of America, which brought back the threat of a new US war of aggression, this time against Iran, following the US President Donald Trump’s announcement, on May of last year, of withdrawing the US from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action on production of nuclear energy by the Islamic Republic of Iran, signed in July of 2015, between the US, China, France, United Kingdom, Russia, Germany, and Iran.
