Diplomatic Engagement: Renew efforts for dialogue and negotiations among nuclear powers to prevent escalation.

Strengthening Protocols: Reinforce international treaties and agreements that control nuclear weapons and their testing.

Promoting Disarmament: Encourage nuclear disarmament initiatives and reduce the global nuclear arsenal.
