Spineless NPT Conference Papers Over Cracks and Ends with a Whimper

Delegates from 153 countries at the 2005 NPT Review Conference failed to build on past agreements and adopt any kind of decisions or recommendations for furthering progress in the vital security issues of nuclear nonproliferation and disarmament. From start to finish, this conference did little more than go through the motions, and was one of the most shameful exhibitions of cynical time-wasting seen outside the Geneva Conference on Disarmament.

US NUCLEAR HYPOCRISY: BAD FOR THE US, BAD FOR THE WORLD



Every five years the parties to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty meet in a review conference to further the non-proliferation and disarmament
goals of the treaty. This year the conference ended in a spectacular
failure with no final document and no agreement on moving forward. The failure of the treaty conference is overwhelmingly attributable to the nuclear policies of the Bush administration, which has disavowed previous US nuclear disarmament commitments under the treaty. The Bush administration does not seem to grasp the hypocrisy of pressing other nations to forego their nuclear options, while failing to fulfill its own obligations under the disarmament provisions of the treaty.

A Review of the Non-Proliteration Treaty Review Conference

PEJ News - F.H. Knelman, Ph.D.: The Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) currently under review can only be fully understood within the context of the materials used in nuclear power reactors and those used to manufacture nuclear weapons. The key element in both of these is uranium. The dominant nuclear power reactors in the world use enriched uranium as their fuel rods. The two isotopes in natural uranium are U-235 and U-238. The process of enrichment is to increase the Uranium-235 component in natural uranium from 0.217 parts per 100 to reactor grade level. Only the Canadian reactor, CANDU, uses natural uranium for its fuel.

Iran Defends the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty

Iran's Foreign Minister Kamal Kharrazi's address to the Seventh Review Conference of the Treaty on Nonproliferation of Nuclear Weapons was a diplomatic masterpiece. It stood in sharp contrast to the bullying and hectoring by the U.S. delegation about the Treaty's supposed "loopholes".

President Bush?s Press Conference: Missing the Point!

?It makes sense to put somebody who?s skilled and who is not afraid to speak his mind at the United Nations.? So said President George W. Bush during his spirited defense of his nominee for ambassador to the United Nations, John Bolton. Mr. President, I think you missed the point. The biggest problem with Mr. Bolton is that he does just that; he speaks his mind.

First Canadian Peace Organization Report on the NPT Review Conference

The NPT Conference meets at a time when the Treaty faces pressures from
potential proliferators and the compliance record of several non-nuclear
weapons states is in question. At the same time, the nuclear weapons states retain their arsenals, the policies to use them, and programs to upgrade them.
Despite these challenges, the member states parties have not yet agreed to an
agenda for the meeting to enable them to commence substantive work. This prevents the conference from moving to the work of the main committees, where more detailed substantive work takes place. In the meantime, platitudes and declarations are all we're hearing.

Greenpeace: Last chance for Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty

Tensions on the first day of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty Conference currently being held in New York are threatening to derail the relevance of the treaty, Greenpeace warned today. "If the 2005 conference fails to reach consensus, the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty will exist in name only."

Comprehensive Demands for Abolition of Nuclear Weapons in the NPT Treaty

PEJ News
- Joan Russow - Global Compliance research Project - May 4, 2005: In 2006, which is sixty years after the use of the nuclear bomb on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and twenty years after the nuclear disaster in Chernobyl, the Non proliferation treaty is being examined at the UN. Comprehensive demands must be included in the review of the Non Proliferation Treaty if the global community is to prevent the long term irreversible health, social and environmental impacts of use and production of nuclear weapons:
