Dear Mr. President,

We welcome that at the review conference of the Nuclear
Nonproliferation Treaty in May the five original nuclear powers
agreed to abolish all nuclear weapons. But no fixed time table was
set. The nuclear powers committed themselves to nuclear disarmament
already in 1970, but nuclear weapons are still with us.

Why wait? Please set an example by making unilateral deep cuts in
nuclear weapons, which will only improve our security, and by
calling for an urgent meeting to set an early fixed date by which
all nuclear weapons are to be abolished.

There is a Korean saying, "The day I finally decided to visit my
friend, it was his funeral." Let us not wait until it is too late!

Sincerely yours,
