As geopolitical tensions escalate, researchers highlight the growing prominence of nuclear arms in international relations, with states like the US and Russia modernizing their arsenals amidst strained diplomatic efforts. The number of operational nuclear weapons globally is on the rise, surpassing 9585 warheads, according to the SIPRI Institute's annual report.

NATO's discussions on potentially deploying more nuclear weapons in a ready-to-use state have drawn criticism from Russia, further exacerbating global security concerns. The surge in global spending on nuclear weapons, up 13% to a record $91.4 billion in 2023, underscores the urgent need for diplomatic solutions to mitigate the escalating nuclear arms race.
