Keep the Middle East Nuclear Test Free

Middle East

Executive director of the Arms Control Association, Daryl G. Kimball,  has published an editorial explaining why CTBT ratification is an integral component of establishing a Middle East free of weapons of mass destruction, with special importance given to Iran:

…if the agreement between Iran and the P5+1 is to be truly comprehensive, Iran’s leaders should also be called on and should agree to promptly ratify the [CTBT]…ratification of the CTBT by key states in the region—Egypt, Iran, and Israel—could be a game changer. It would accelerate CTBT entry into force and help create the conditions necessary for the realization of a Middle East zone free of nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction, the long-sought goal of Egypt, other Arab states, and Iran…”
