Berlin, 5 August 2020
PCS Secretariat re-published:
Tomorrow is the 75th anniversary of the dropping of the first atomic bomb on Hiroshima. The anniversary is a reminder to take the growing danger of nuclear war seriously.
In the joint statement, former German diplomats accredited to the Conference on Disarmament in Geneva call for the strengthening of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT). This objective warrants a strong political engagement at a high political level. The NPT, which came into force 50 years ago, remains the cornerstone for nuclear non-proliferation, nuclear disarmament and the peaceful uses of nuclear energy. The NPT Review Conference scheduled for early next year must be used to preserve and strengthen it. The disarmament experts propose a number of measures to this end.
