The Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO) is the next stepping stone to create a nuclear free world, according to its Executive Secretary.

The CTBT works to make it difficult for countries to start developing nuclear bombs, or for countries that already have them to make more powerful ones.

Lassina Zerbo was at UN Headquarters to attend a review conference on the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT).

This international treaty aims to prevent the spread of nuclear weapons and to foster the peaceful uses of nuclear energy.

Cristina Silveiro began by asking Mr Zerbo to explain why the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization is the next stepping stone to rid the world of nuclear weapons.
