03.05.2017 - Statement by Ambassador Mikhail I.Ulyanov, Head of the Delegation of the Russian Federation at the First Session of the Preparatory Committee for the 2020 Review Conference of the Parties to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons, Vienna, May 2, 2017

We are starting the next NPT review cycle in rather difficult circumstances. The Treaty is still facing serious challenges. Of course there were problems before but in recent years they have become particularly visible. We observe the increasing radicalization of approaches to nuclear disarmament, nuclear non-proliferation and even to peaceful uses of nuclear energy. NPT-relevant issues are being discussed at alternative fora with work there arranged not on the basis of mutually respectful dialogue and the rule of consensus as it is the case in the framework of the NPT, but on simple voting. The current situation does not contribute to the integrity and viability of the Treaty which makes us look into its future with concern.
