The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan will host the next full-scale simulation of an on-site inspection (OSI) under the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT). An OSI is the Treaty’s final verification measure conducted to ascertain whether or not a nuclear explosion has taken place. The Integrated Field Exercise 2014, known as IFE14, will be held in southern Jordan, near the Dead Sea, in November 2014.

Speaking at a press conference in Amman, Jordan, Mohammad Hussien Al Momani, Minister of State for Media Affairs and Communications said that “Jordan is proud to host this exercise. It is in line with Jordan’s desire to strengthen the nuclear disarmament and non-proliferation framework, in particular in the Middle East.”
