Review Conference of the Parties to the Treaty on the


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.
