Nuclear weapons more prominent amid geopolitical tensions: researchers

Diplomatic efforts to control nuclear weapons also suffered major setbacks amid tense international relations over the conflicts in Ukraine and Gaza, the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) said in its annual yearbook.
