Japan has made a new voluntary contribution of U.S.$ 455,000 to the Preparatory Commission of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO).
The larger part of the funds will flow into the further enhancement of the verification system of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT). The contribution will also be used to support activities of the recently established Group of Eminent Persons (GEM).
The Japan Times reports on Japanese Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida’s speech on nuclear disarmament and non-proliferation. Japan will “proactively contribute to promoting the effectuation of the CTBT and developing the verification system,” Kishida stressed.
