1:32 pm
a life threatening situation. tens of thousands of people have been told to leave their homes immediately. so the already delayed united nations conference on nuclear arms control has been further postponed until august because of the pandemic. the meeting is meant to be held every 5 years to assess how countries are implementing the 1970 non proliferation treaty a $191.00 nations of agreed to eliminate nuclear weapons under the treaty. at this latest meeting was originally scheduled for 2020 a nuclear arms control groups concerned the near to year delay is needing some countries to pursue a nuclear arms race. recent events of escalate attentions, including the testing of hypersonic missiles by russian, by china, and iran's increasing capacity to enrich uranium. and let's take this on. we can speak to, to, to graph who's a former head of the verification and security policy coordination office at the international atomic energy agency. his at been an official delegate of every non
1:33 pm
proliferation treaty meeting since 1987 john just now from vienna. mr. of welcome to the program. if there is one conferences should not be delayed, it surely is one about controlling the world's top pile of nuclear weapons. yes, exactly. that's what we would think. but in my personal view, this additional delay, i think it's probably a good thing because the relations between the 3 main nuclear weapon states, china, russia, and united states are very problematic at the moment. and as you know, there will be that was whether a telephone call between president biden and put in guests yesterday to talk about the situation and the military build up on the border with ukraine. as you mentioned in your introductory comments, all of the nuclear weapons states are busy modernizing that nuclear arsenals. unfortunately, none of the nuclear states they heed to the nonproliferation treaties,
1:34 pm
nuclear disarmament obligations. so from my point of view, this further delay to august of next year probably gives us a little bit more time for temper stickle down. and for the 3 main nuclear weapon states to probably bring their relations to a better or more even keel. when you say countries of modernizing that nuclear arsenals does that concur with a view of that nuclear activists use direct say that these delays are enabling countries to pursue and nuclear arms race? no, i wouldn't agree that nuclear arms race was already on regardless of the nonproliferation treaty review conferences. although in the review conferences, particularly in 19952002010, all of the states agreed to significant steps to be achieved on nuclear disarmament . but most of these unfortunately have not been observed. so i would not agree that
1:35 pm
the, the delay and then the review conferences facilitating the nuclear arms race rather the other way around. the continuing nuclear race is actually endangering success at n p t review conferences. so what, in your view that needs to be done to, to try and ease off this, there's always race that is happening and what implications that these frayed relations is you, you put it between trying to rush from the united states have in that all better and what deals should be sought? well, it was good that the president biden and then met in geneva and june of this year. and earlier in february of this year, russia and they're now to state the further extended by 5 years. the new start greedy that limits their nuclear weapons. and now we would like to russia and the us to negotiate a follow on treaty that under which they would reduce the nuclear weapons further. and also for try lateral negotiations involving china, united states and russia,
1:36 pm
to talk about nuclear arms control and disarmament. and this usually has its own dynamic, the 5 nuclear weapons states under the nonproliferation treaty that include the 3 that i mentioned last step, fonts and china or russia, united states. they are obligated to reduce their weapons, but they haven't been doing so the united kingdom will actually not produce as many weapons at it as it had promised. so the 5 weapon states need to agree amongst themselves to come up with some new agreement to further reduce nuclear weapons. seems like there's an awful long way to go. rough appreciate that. thanks very much indeed for your time. thank you. a us led forces formerly and did that combat mission in iraq. early this month, the operation was the response to the rise of i saw some trips will remain in
