Trust & Verify No. 161

Trust & Verify Issue No. 160 is now available in three versions:

In this edition:

Alberto Muti wonders whether the ‘complete, verifiable, irreversible dismantlement’ of the DPRK is still an objective. If not, it should be.

In Verification Watch, Larry MacFaul updates on the international response to chemical weapons use, and Andreas Persbo writes about the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action as well as recent efforts to reach consensus on a Fissile Material Cut-Off Treaty.

In Implementation Watch, Ben Reedman muses on the new UK Safeguards Bill, while Cédric Apercé discusses international criminal accountability for the use of chemical and biological weapons.

Compliance Watch features Sylvia Barnett, who highlights the dangers of exporting aeroplane parts to North Korea, and Celeste Donovan, who writes about the problems with ‘Flags of Convenience.’

In Science & Technology Scan, finally, Andreas Persbo writes about NASA’s Operation Ice Bridge as well as the IAEA’s MOSAIC project.

As customary, the edition ends with staff news.
