NPT Review Conference at UN Headquarters
The hybrid military campaign launched against Russia could lead to conflict between the nuclear powers. This was stated by Deputy Director of the Department for Non-Proliferation and Arms Control of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs Igor Vishnevetsky during the conference of the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) at the UN. The broadcast was hosted by the UN press service.
“A hybrid military campaign has been unleashed against Russia, which is forced to defend its legitimate right to ensure its fundamental security interests, fraught with slipping into a direct conflict between nuclear powers,” — Vishnevetsky said.
He pointed out that Russia is committed to building a world “free of nuclear weapons” and is fully fulfilling its obligations, including those under Art. 6 NPT.
According to Art. 6 of the NPT, each party to the treaty undertakes to negotiate effective measures to end the nuclear arms race in the near future and to achieve nuclear disarmament, as well as a treaty on general and complete disarmament under strict and effective international control.
In addition, Russia continues to fulfill its obligations under the START Treaty (Treaty on Measures for the Further Reduction and Limitation of Strategic Offensive Arms.— RBC), which was extended in February this year for five years, Vishnevetsky said. “However, the positive developments turned out to be devalued by the US policy of ignoring Russia's red lines in the field of security,” — he said, noting that Moscow “rebuffed” this course, and Washington used it as a “pretext for freezing the strategic dialogue.”
In conclusion of his speech, Vishnevetsky stressed that in the current situation, “restrained, responsible behavior of the nuclear powers” is very important.
