Preparatory Committee for the 2020 Review Conference of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty

New York, 30 April 2019. The Third Session of the Preparatory Committee for the 2020 Review Conference of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty opened today in New York, with an intervention by Izumi Nakamitsu, UN High Representative for Disarmament Affairs.

Amb. Gianfranco Incarnato, Permanent Representative of Italy to the Conference on Disarmament in Geneva, intervened during the General debate to reaffirm Italy's commitment towards nuclear disarmament and non-proliferation, as well as to the promotion of peaceful uses of nuclear energy, which are grounded on this essential Treaty.

Recalling the need for a progressive approach to nuclear disarmament, founded on a series of concrete and effective measures, Amb. Incarnato stressed the following Italian priorities: entry into force of the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty; conclusion of a Treaty on the production of fissile materials; and establishment of a zone free of weapons of mass destruction in the Middle East.
