Motion text

That this House welcomes the support for nuclear disarmament initiatives and the strengthening of the Nuclear Non Proliferation Treaty made by President-elect Obama in his successful campaign for the United States Presidency; notes that he affirmed the `long-term goal of achieving a world free of all nuclear weapons'; echoing the personal commitment made by former US President Ronald Reagan and former Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev in their nuclear disarmament summit in Reykjavik in 1986; further notes that as a Senator, Barack Obama also co-sponsored with Republic Senator Dick Lugar in 2007 a resolution in the US Senate to control nuclear explosive materials with the goal of `entirely securing all nuclear material in vulnerable sites within four years'; further notes that Mr Obama said in August 2007, during the Presidential campaign, that he would, if elected, make it his `priority to build bipartisan consensus behind ratification of the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty'; and believes the Government should work constructively with President Obama to achieve these excellent global security goals.
