Religions for Peace and Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons
The 2010 Review Conference of the Parties to the Treaty on the
Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) was held in May 2010 at UN
Headquarters in New York. The final declaration was agreed by the 189
member states after comprehensive talks on the last day of the conference.
The NPT is acknowledged as the cornerstone of global disarmament efforts
and is even strengthened after the unanimously agreed final declaration.
The document calls for the United Nations secretary general to organise a
meeting of Middle East states in 2012 to agree to the creation of a “zone
free of nuclear weapons and all other weapons of mass destruction”. “All
eyes the world over are watching us,” said conference president Libran
Cabactulan, of the Philippines, as the final text was approved. More than
2000 representatives of NGOs and faith groups including several Religions
for Peace representatives were present during the month-long conference
and Religions for Peace organised several events.
