In the United Nations, one hundred and twenty nine countries will adopt the first-ever treaty to ban nuclear weapons on Friday.

The nuclear armed states United States, Britain, France and other nuclear powers have boycotted negotiations and termed the ban as unrealistic.  

Nuclear power states argued the ban will have no impact on reducing the global stockpile of fifteen thousand nuclear weapons.

President of the U.N. conference Elayne Whyte Gomez has described the treaty as a historic achievement.

Led by Austria, Brazil, Mexico, South Africa and New Zealand, 141 countries have taken part in three weeks of negotiations on the treaty that provides for a total ban on developing, stockpiling or threatening to use nuclear weapons.
