Every nuclear test is a red line not to be crossed – non-proliferation organization leader by RT

In an interview with RT on 16 October 2017,  Executive Secretary Lassina Zerbo responds to a range of issues in the nuclear non-proliferation regime including: addressing the “nuclear crisis in North Korea”; the risks and possible consequences of further nuclear tests; as well as the role of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.

Once again, the world faces a nuclear crisis in North Korea – this time more than ever, with unpredictable leadership on both sides. With missiles armed and ready, the world may perish in a free-for-all exchange, despite all the diplomacy. Calls for a total ban on nuclear weapons are also ringing louder. But can humanity really give them up? We ask Lassina Zerbo, executive secretary of the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty organization and participant of the Valdai Discussion Club.
