VERTIC at 2019 PrepCom

On 24 May 2018, the UN Secretary-General published ‘Securing our Common Future: Agenda for Disarmament.’ In this document, the Secretary-General stated his intention to ‘re-energize nuclear disarmament discussions’ focusing on ways to prepare for a world free of nuclear weapons. With this in mind, the seminar will also discuss how technical exchanges on verification standards and techniques can support this goal.

Speakers:

  1. Ambassador Guilherme de Aguiar Patriota, Permanent Representative to the Conference on Disarmament, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Brazil;
  2. Mr Li Chijiang, Vice President and Secretary-General, China Arms Control and Disarmament Association;
