Executive Secretary addresses Bangladesh Institute of International and Strategic Studies
8 October 2018
The value of the CTBT is underpinned by its science-based verification system capable of monitoring and detecting nuclear explosions.
The common ground which the international community can and should agree on is that we cannot return to the era of nuclear weapons testing. Despite political differences and recurring tensions, there is a de facto international norm against testing, solidified through the science and technology behind the CTBT.
I hope to continue counting on Bangladesh’s support in encouraging other countries to sign and ratify the CTBT, in particular in the South Asia region.
Lively exchange during a lecture at Bangladesh Institute of International & Strategic Studies. Well attended by scholars, diplomats, defense officials, international organizations & journalists. ”The NPT framework seems to disarm the unarmed” said a former diplomat. @BiissInfo pic.twitter.com/nmsz3xOgbW— Lassina Zerbo (@SinaZerbo) 5 octobre 2018
