ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's comments on the need for an international law and order to regulate nuclear warfare. The author holds that a world of order which excludes war, will appear as the one and most important accomplishment of mankind. However, the fact that the world has become insecure in other ways must be considered as a great challenge, which, in my mind, cannot be resolved easily. Nonetheless, the author thinks that this problem can be resolved eventually if we have intelligence and courage and understanding for people.
