“The effect of non-NPT signatory states on global peace and security.”
“The NPT is a landmark international treaty whose objective is to prevent the spread of nuclear weapons and weapons technology, to promote cooperation in the peaceful uses of nuclear energy and to further the goal of achieving nuclear disarmament and general and complete disarmament.”- United Nations Office for Disarmament Affairs. Having been opened for signatures in 1968, and brought into effect in 1970, the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty is the only binding multilateral treaty for nonproliferation of nuclear weaponry. A total of 191 countries have signed the NPT, including the P5 nations.
The agenda, however, focuses on the 4 nations that are not signatories of the NPT at present, 3 of whom did not sign since the beginning (India, Pakistan, Israel), and North Korea, which withdrew from the treaty in 1994, and the effect of these choices on global peace and security.
