INSIDE STORY: Will the USA pull out of the Iran nuclear deal? Activists wearing masks to look like US President Donald Trump and North Korean Kim Jong-Un recently posed next to a Styrofoam effigy of a nuclear bomb while protesting in front of the Brandenburg Gate near the American Embassy in Berlin, Germany.
Spending on nuclear weapons across the nine states that have them exceeds $105 billion a year - money that ICAN says would be better far spent on healthcare, education and disaster relief.

The award, he added, could create a "new stigma" around nuclear arms, similar to the stigma attached to biological and chemical weapons.
Jens Stoltenberg, secretary-general of NATO, who has strongly criticized the nuclear weapons treaty, said in a statement quoted by news agencies that he welcomed "the attention given to the issue" of nuclear weapons by the Nobel committee's choice, but he reiterated his view that the treaty had put years of nonproliferation efforts at risk.

"This is a time of great global tension, when fiery rhetoric could all too easily lead us, inexorably, to unspeakable horror", ICAN said on Friday.
The award to the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) was unexpected, particularly in a year when the architects of the 2015 nuclear deal between world powers and Iran had been seen as favourites for achieving the sort of diplomatic breakthrough that has won the prize in the past.
