White Paper "Ten Steps toward a Weapons of Mass Destruction-Free Zone in the Middle East"

Editor - Andrey Baklitskiy

Various ideas for establishing a nuclear weapons-free zone in the Middle East were first voiced in the early 1960s. Nevertheless, negotiations on establishing a WMD-free zone in the region remain very far from conclusion. The establishment of a WMD-free zone in the Middle East was part of the 1995 NPT Review Conference's decision on the indefinite extension of the NPT; in many respects it is closely linked to that extension. Lack of will to make earnest efforts to establish such a zone could push some states towards reviewing their current NPT status. In its White Paper PIR Center comes up with a set of policy recomendations to get the talks on the zone out of the deadlock.
