Belousov: Russia does not consider it a failure to agree on the final document of the conference of the Day Russia does not consider it a failure that the final document of the conference of the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) was not agreed.
Andrey Belousov, Deputy Head of the Russian delegation, Deputy Permanent Representative of the Russian Federation to the UN Office and other international organizations in Geneva, commented on the results of the event. This is reported by TASS.
He stressed that the collective efforts of the delegations at the NPT Review Conference “for various reasons did not bring the desired result.” “Perhaps some of those present regard this as a failure of all our work over the past review cycle, which will negatively affect both our further joint activities and the integrity and stability of the treaty. We do not share this assessment,” Belousov said.
Earlier, the chairman of the NPT conference Gustavo Zlauvinen said that its participants did not agree on the final document because they could not reach consensus on the substantive part. Consensus was reached on the procedural part setting the dates for the next NPT conference in 2026 and preparations for it.
