OSLO (IPS) - Norway's foreign affairs minister Jonas Gahr Støre has called for giving new priority to nuclear disarmament that has been assigned to oblivion since the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989.

"Good governance and human rights took priority over disarmament because the nuclear threat was perceived as having disappeared," the minister told IPS.
