The NPT review conference is the Premier event in the field of nuclear non-proliferation and disarmament and is held every five years. The objective of the event – to review the performance of the Treaty on the nonproliferation of nuclear weapons during the reporting period, and outline the appropriate steps for the future.

The Treaty on the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons is the cornerstone of the international nuclear non-proliferation regime. The document establishes the inalienable right of all States parties to the research, production and use of nuclear energy for peaceful purposes. The review conference for its implementation is carried out every five years. Since the entry into force on 5 March 1970, the participants were all independent States members of the United Nations, with the exception of three ─ Israel, India and Pakistan. The DPRK announced its withdrawal from the Treaty. But the international community is the fact that you do not recognize, as you do not recognize North Korea’s nuclear status.
