As of 1 January, the Preparatory Commission for the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO) has started receiving data from key International Monitoring System (IMS) stations hosted by China.
CTBTO Executive Secretary Lassina Zerbo welcomed the step: “The Chinese stations’ data significantly enhances our system’s global coverage. And it is more than that: China has demonstrated its dedication to the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty and its verification regime. I encourage other countries with unresolved issues regarding our stations to follow China’s leadership.”
