Dialogue 11/02/2012 World nuclear security

11-03-2012 05:00 BJT

The speed of developments in the new century makes us look anew at old security mechanisms, first of all relating to nuclear security. Can a small group of politicians leading nuclear weapon states make a meaningful progress towards a more predictable situation with weapons of mass destruction?

How to establish an effective control over nuclear technologies and at the same time guarantee the right of sovereign states for peaceful nuclear development? How to ensure a true, not superficial, equality in the nuclear sphere? How fully is the potential of diplomacy used in solving the problems of nonproliferation?

Today we are joined here live by Sam Nunn, Co-chairman of Nuclear Threat Initiative, who outlined what he believes needs to be done to reduce and ultimately eliminate the threat of nuclear weapons.
