Here’s what’s happened since last week’s updates: Blockade had negative impact on regional anti-terror fight, but Qatar continued its fight

September 25, 2018


Qatar affirmed that the total elimination of nuclear weapons is the only absolute guarantee that such weapons should not be used or threatened its use, calling for effective nuclear disarmament measures, in accordance with international treaties, and a specific practical mechanism for the Middle East to be cleared of nuclear weapons, reported QNA.

This came in Qatar's statement delivered by HE Ambassador of the State of Qatar to the Republic of Austria and Permanent Representative to the United Nations and international organizations in Vienna Sheikh Ali bin Jassim Al-Thani, before the annual General Conference of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

His excellency regretted that the resolution of 1995 NPT Review Conference (Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons) in the Middle East on the denuclearization of the region had not been implemented and called for sincere efforts to implement that resolution and to find a practical mechanism that would follow a timetable for the establishment of a region free of nuclear and other weapons of mass destruction in the Middle East, the final outcome of which would be Israel's accession to the NPT as a non-nuclear state, as progressing on that subject would have positive consequences for the 2020 Review Conference.
