ABSTRACT
The article discusses the survey entitled "Global Public Opinion on Nuclear Weapons," which addressed the attitudes of six Western nations to nuclear weapons. The results revealed that nations who have the weapon refused to confirm or deny it. It further highlighted how people in countries without nuclear weapons find the issue threatening while people in countries with nuclear weapons find it a threat except their own.
