UK Should Support Nuclear Weapons Convention

left

George Monbiot presents a strong analysis of the nuclear hypocrisy of many governments, our own included (Comment, July 29), but it is now vital that Britain plays a positive role in ensuring real progress is made towards multilateral disarmament. The most technically thorough and widely supported plan is embodied in the draft nuclear weapons convention, currently lodged at the UN. This provides for verifiable parallel reductions in stockpiles and a thorough inspections regime. The fact that three nuclear nations, China, India and Pakistan, are among the 127 states that support immediate negotiations on this will surprise many. But this shows the very strong diplomatic support the draft treaty has already gathered. The UK should make clear its support for this initiative, rather than maintaining the increasingly hazardous status quo.
