NATO’s Enduring Commitment to the Non-Proliferation Treaty

Seminar with Rose Gottemoeller and William Alberque

Friday, 05 May 2017 at 13:15

The Vienna Center for Disarmament and Non-Proliferation (VCDNP) cordially invites you to attend a seminar by Rose Gottemoeller, NATO Deputy Secretary General, and William Alberque, Head of NATO Arms Control and Coordination Section, entitled “NATO’s Enduring Commitment to the Non-Proliferation Treaty,” which will be held on Friday, 5 May 2017, at 13:15. Refreshments will be served at 13:00.

VENUE CHANGE: This event will now take place in the Conference Hall of the Permanent Mission of Japan located at Donau-City-Strasse 6, Andromeda Tower, Floor 24, 1220 Vienna, Austria.

The Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) continues to serve as the cornerstone of international efforts to prevent the spread of nuclear weapons and weapons technology, to achieve the ultimate goal of disarmament and to share the benefits of the peaceful uses of nuclear energy. NATO Allies have been strong supporters of the Treaty since its negotiation. Since the NPT’s entry into force, NATO Allies have dramatically reduced the number of nuclear weapons stationed in Europe, their alert status and the reliance on nuclear weapons in NATO strategy. Rose Gottemoeller will discuss the importance to NATO Allies of the NPT and its accompanying regimes of arms control and non-proliferation. William Alberque will provide an historic overview of the NPT negotiations, based on an extensive review of rarely-seen records of the US, NATO and the Warsaw Pact, highlighting the role of NATO’s nuclear sharing arrangements as part of the NPT negotiations.
