This has now been enforced for 50 years. It's made a powerful difference to the world in making the world a safer place, making it less dangerous. Making sure that countries with nuclear weapons including the United States, pursue disarmament, making sure that countries that don't have nuclear weapons do not acquire them by upholding and strengthening Non-Proliferation, and making sure that countries can engage in the peaceful use of nuclear energy.”

4. SOUNDBITE (English) Antony Blinken, Secretary of State, United States:
“This is a critical moment for the NPT. It's a challenging one too because different parts of this regime are under challenge. And of course, we see that particularly in the area of Non-Proliferation when we have challenges been posed by Iran, by North Korea, and now in different ways by Russia. So, the next 30 days, the work that's being done here, by countries around the world to reaffirm the Non-Proliferation Treaty, to strengthen it, to strengthen each one of its pillars, disarmament, Non-Proliferation, peaceful use, is more vital than it's ever been. The United States will be here in force.”
