ANTI-NUKE DOCUMENTARY. Ambassador Libran N. Cabactulan, Philippine Permanent Representative to the United Nations and President of the 2010 Review Conference on the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons, with UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and UN Messenger of Peace and actor Michael Douglas during the special screening of "Countdown to Zero," a documentary about the escalating global nuclear arms situation. "Countdown to Zero" traces the history of the atomic bomb from its origins to the present state of global affairs, with the world held in a delicate balance that could be shattered by an act of terrorism, failed diplomacy, or a simple accident, thus making it a compelling case for nuclear disarmament. The initiative is jointly sponsored by Global Zero and the UN Secretariat within the context of the 2010 NPT Review Conference. (UN Photo by Mark Garten)
