10th Review Conference of the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons
This week, I will travel to the United States to lead Australia’s delegation to the tenth Review Conference of the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) at the United Nations in New York.
The NPT is the cornerstone of the global nuclear non-proliferation and disarmament regime, making a vital contribution to international security.
As a near universal instrument with 191 States Parties, the Review Conference of the NPT is an opportunity for the international community to redouble our efforts on nuclear risk reduction, non-proliferation and disarmament.
Australia has a proud history of promoting non-proliferation and disarmament, and we will continue to play an engaged and constructive role throughout the August Review Conference. Australia’s commitment to the NPT is unwavering.
