“This year marks the 20th anniversary since the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT) was open for signing. This treaty was a great victory for international diplomacy at the time and showed just how effective such diplomacy can be at resolving the greatest challenges to global security.

The treaty provides a tremendously important mechanism for limiting nuclear weapons and preventing their proliferation, and plays a primary role in strengthening international stability. At the same time, however, we cannot but feel concern over the fact that this treaty has still to come into effect."

Russian President Vladimir Putin (full statement)

"Universal ratification of the test ban treaty would be a step toward creating a truly global community of nations, in which all share the responsibility for humankind’s future."
Former President of the Soviet Union Mikhail Gorbachev in CTBTO Spectrum 17 - article (PDF)
