EIF Activities

"A legally binding CTBT is one of the preconditions for achieving a world free of nuclear weapons. Norway has therefore on a number of occasions urged all remaining countries, whose ratification is necessary for entry into force, to ratify the CTBT, and has provided funding for activities to this end."
Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Støre in CTBTO Spectrum 12.
