NPT Conference in Turmoil on Final DayThe final day of the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty conference was marred by disputes over the session's final statement, Reuters reported today.
The annual session to plan for the treaty's 2010 review conference was scheduled to end today, but Iran and other Nonaligned Movement nations objected to the chairman’s summary statement, according to Reuters
Developing nations argued that the statement focused too much on treaty compliance concerns, notably regarding Iran, and not enough on provisions requiring nuclear-weapon states to move toward disarmament, Reuters reported. [via Yahoo! News]
