All nations should denuclearize.
Ideally, all weapons, nuclear or not, should be eliminated, because killing is never a good thing. It doesn't seem possible in practice to eliminate all weapons, but the most destructive one, the nuclear weapon, could be eliminated.
No one actually wants to use nuclear weapons, so there is no reason for anyone to have them.
The material used for nuclear weapons could be better used to create clean energy.
The world would be a much safer place if nuclear weapons didn't exist.
Smaller nations like North Korea have no incentive to denuclearize since it is a large part of their defensive strategy.
The first nations to denuclearize will be vulnerable to still-nuclear enemies.
The method for making nuclear weapons is now known and could be done by small, independent terrorist organizations, so denuclearization would not make the use of nuclear weapons impossible.
Nuclear arms has allowed nations to be forced into a stalemate since launching an attack can result in the possible end of countries or worse, the world. As a result, nuclear nations are much more peaceful and act more democratically to other nuclear nations.
This won't happen. You can only do this by making nuclear weapons no longer useful, and that can only be done by making them obsolete.
It would only take one rogue state that refuses to denuclearize to create the possibility of nuclear war.
