NPT準備委員会意見

Susi Snyderからのメール(atr authorized)
Dear Ambassador,
Dear Colleagues,
In advance of the forthcoming nuclear Non Proliferation Treaty Preparatory Committee meeting, IKV Pax Christi has prepared the attached recommendations paper.
IKV Pax Christi is a Dutch peace and security organisation working on a wide range of disarmament issues, including nuclear weapons. The organisation is a proud partner of the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) and hosts the global secretariat of the Abolition 2000 Network.
The paper contains recommendations related to all three pillars of the NPT- disarmament, non-proliferation and peaceful uses. In addition, we include recommendations related to the establishment of a zone free of nuclear and other weapons of mass destruction in the Middle East.
NPT Members agreed in 2010 that any use of nuclear weapons would have catastrophic humanitarian consequences. IKV Pax Christi urges all states to reaffirm this statement at the 2013 PrepCom. In addition, we encourage States to make an explicit reference to the recent conference in Norway on the Humanitarian Impact of Nuclear Weapons, and to welcome Mexico’s initiative to host a follow-up meeting.
IKV Pax Christi is a firm believer in disarmament and non-proliferation education. Towards that end, the organisation is part of a funding consortium with the Dutch government that sponsors four PhD candidates focused on non-proliferation and disarmament matters. IKV Pax Christi also organises a student crash course in nuclear diplomacy, and will bring 10 students as part of our delegation to the NPT this year. The students are hoping to meet with many delegations and get first hand experience of the NPT and discussions expected to take place in Geneva. Please get in touch with me directly to set up a time to meet with this dynamic group of students.
I hope you find the attached recommendations useful as food-for-thought, and I am at your disposal to talk about them further.
With kind regards,

Susi Snyder
