The Russian Federation ratified the Non-proliferation Treaty (NPT) the 1st July 1968. It has since conformed to the Treaty and been one of the strongest voices in favour of the Treaty, and of Weapons of Mass destruction (WMD) free zones. The Russian Federation is committed to reducing the WMD worldwide. Russian stance on WMD is extremely strict. We urge the countries that have not signed the NPT, such as Pakistan and India, to do so.
The Russia-US START Treaty has been effectively being implemented by the sides since its entry into force in 2011, with the view to achieving agreed limits by 2018 (700 missiles, 1,550 warheads and 800 launchers). The Russian Federation believes that all the countries should reduce their number of nuclear weapons and shows its strong support by reducing its own number of warheads and missiles.
Today the proliferation of such weapons, including, and especially in the Middle East region pose a global threat. The possibility of a terrorist group gaining access to such a weapon is also higher than previously.
As a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC), a global military and diplomatic power, the Russian Federation further urges countries to conform to the NPT, and other restrictive treaties on Nuclear weapons and their use. To resolve ongoing problems, tensions or illegal nuclear weapons development, the Russian Federation asks that all measures taken be diplomatic and respect international law.
In order to have a unilateral decision to disarm, the UN must be able to create and maintain compliance between the major global military powers and alliances, and be able to create a frame, which allows to reduce tensions and trust.
The Russian Federation also strongly opposes the use of biological or chemical weapons and strongly supports the Geneva convention.
