PRESIDENT BUSH AND THE NUCLEAR NON-PROLIFERATION TREATY
EDM #871
Tabled 09 March 2005
2004-05 Session
That this House welcomes President Bush's statement of 7th March in support of nuclear non-proliferation and the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT); agrees with his observation that the NPT `represents a key legal barrier to nuclear weapons proliferation'; notes his reaffirmation of the determination of the United States `to carry out its treaty commitments'; agrees with his assertion that NPT parties `must take strong action to confront the threat of non compliance with the NPT in order to preserve and strengthen the Treaty's non-proliferation undertakings'; supports his policy statement on not allowing rogue states that violate their commitments and defy the international community to undermine the NPT's fundamental role in strengthening international security; therefore calls on the United States Administration to honour its commitment under Article 1 of the NPT that `each nuclear-weapon state party to the Treaty undertakes not to transfer to any recipient whatsoever nuclear weapons or other nuclear explosive devices or control over such weapons or explosive devices directly, or indirectly' and thus to cancel any further collaboration on the Trident nuclear WMD system; calls upon President Bush to honour Article 6 of the NPT that binds each of the parties to the Treaty to undertake to `pursue negotiations in good faith on effective measures relating to cessation of the nuclear arms race at an early date and to nuclear disarmament'; and calls upon the UK Government similarly to honour its equivalent commitments.
