Next steps for nuclear negotiations after New Start

On 31 March 2011, VERTIC sponsored an event on ‘next steps for nuclear negotiations after New Start’, which asked the question ‘What prospects for US-Russia talks and the entry into-force of the comprehensive nuclear test ban treaty’? The office of Senator John Kerry (D-Mass) gave the meeting a room in the US Senate Visitor Center.

The event featured a panel comprising Pavel Podvig, an independent analyst based in Geneva, Dr. Edward M. Ifft, a retired member of the Senior Executive Service and a Foreign Affairs Officer at the US Department of State, and Raymond Willeman, the IRIS director of planning. The meeting was chaired by Paul Ingram, Executive Director of the British American Security Information Council (BASIC).

Andreas Persbo, VERTIC’s Executive Director, gave opening remarks.

The meeting was attended by about 30 delegates. A meeting report will soon be released on the websites of the British American Security Information Council (BASIC) and VERTIC.
