CTBTO Executive Secretary Tóth honors memory of former U.S. disarmament negotiator Ledogar

Tibor Tóth, Executive Secretary of the Preparatory Commission for the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO), paid tribute to Stephen Ledogar, a principal negotiator of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT), who passed away on 3 May 2010.  Tóth spoke on the fourth day of the 2010 Review Conference of the Non-proliferation Treaty (NPT), dedicating his statement to the memory of Stephen Ledogar.

“I am deeply saddened by the passing away of one of the Treaty’s principal negotiators and dear friend on the very day this Review Conference started.  Ambassador Stephen Ledogar, the U.S. chief negotiator, was deeply devoted to the establishment of the Treaty and to arms control and non-proliferation in general, even in the final months of his life,” Tóth said.
