Key findings:

  • Russia and the United States should re-establish the tradition of the cooperative game in the NPT Review Conference and put the blame game aside.
  • Two countries should restore collaborative work on preventing horizontal proliferation in the world, continue work on further bilateral strategic arms control, rebuild the spirit and the practical work on bilateral cooperation on peaceful uses of nuclear energy (without politicizing work of the IAEA). 
  • Solving the North Korean nuclear issue is doable if it is done not bilaterally (US-DPRK) but regionally. 
  • P5 forum is a useful platform to discuss the CTBT, nuclear risk reduction, and new zones free of nuclear weapons (as a practical response to the TPNW).
