NPT Review Conference Begins

The 2010 Review Conference of the Parties to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons begins in New York today. All of the statements given will be published on the official website.

Iran’s President Ahmadinejad was notably not invited to President Obama’s Nuclear Security Summit last month, but he will be attending this conference, speaking during this morning’s session. (For more on the Summit in April, see this previous FPA post.) Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will offer her remarks later this afternoon.
