Andreas Persbo presents on CTBT verification in Vienna
On Wednesday 18 July 2012, VERTIC's Executive Director, Andreas Persbo, delivered a presentation on the verification of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty in Vienna.
In his address, Mr Persbo stated that there shouldn't be much debate over the verifiability of the CTBT, given the technical capabilities of its International Monitoring System. 'The treaty regime is strong right now, and will become even stronger in the future,' he argued.
Once the treaty is in force, Mr Persbo said, 'we're entering into a new era: a world where nuclear test explosions are banned in all environments, for all time.' This, he noted, will be good for the environment, good for international security and good for arms control and disarmament. 'Let us look forward to that day, and prepare for it in the meantime.'
