“The superficially calm atmosphere at the third PrepCom was deceptive. There is a major build-up of frustration ahead of the 2015 RevCon in various parts of the world, including the Middle East and the countries that are unhappy with the slow pace of nuclear disarmament, as well as with the restoration of nuclear weapons’ role as the main guarantee of security in the twenty-first century. Also, during the previous RevCons the USA and Russia worked in tandem to produce persuasive counterarguments, channel that frustration, and make it manageable. In 2015, however, such a concerted effort will require a miracle of political acrobatics – and miracles are in very short supply at the moment,” – the PIR Center’s Director Vladimir Orlov.
"Global Internet Governance Forum (IGF) will not be productive if it is a separate element of the ecosystem of Internet governance. The Forum will be able to implement more opportunities, if it can be built into the process of the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS)"- Julia Elanskaya, Deputy Director of International Cooperation Department, Ministry of Mass Communications of the Russian Federation.
“At each of the Review conferences, State parties make lengthier statements and the documents are becoming more and more voluminous. For the next Review Conference, we must concentrate on the practical side of issues.” – Tariq Rauf, Director of Arms Control and Non-proliferation, Stockholm International Peace Research Institute.
