ABSTRACT
The article reports that as the year 1980 is drawing to a close, the world is perilously moving closer to a nuclear suicide. The Strategic Arms Limitation Treaty between the United States and the Soviet Union is in doldrums. At this juncture, the rising public opinion against the arms race should be converted into an international accord. As the world stands on a threshold, the principle of no-first-use of nuclear arms must become the cornerstone of all international relations.
