Motion text

That this House warmly welcomes the statement on 5 May 2009 on behalf of the US administration by Rose Gottemoeller, Assistant Secretary at the US State Department's Bureau of Verification, Compliance, and Implementation and Head of the US Delegation to the Preparatory Committee of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) review conference held at the UN Headquarters in May 2009; additionally welcomes President Obama's personal statement in support of progressive non-proliferation measures conveyed to the Preparatory Committee, particularly his statement that `we must define ourselves not by our differences, but by our readiness to pursue dialogue and hard work to ensure the NPT continues to make an enduring contribution to international peace and security'; notes that President Obama has stressed that the US prioritises the agreement on a new treaty that verifiably ends production of fissile materials intended for use in nuclear weapons, called a Fissile Material Cut-off Treaty; believes that existing so-called civil stockpiles of plutonium, including the 108,000 kilogrammes at Sellafield, must be covered by such a treaty; further welcomes the US administration's call that nuclear weapons states outside the NPT be brought inside the Treaty with, in Ms Gottemoeller's words, `universal adherence to the NPT itself - including by India, Israel, Pakistan and North Korea - a fundamental objective of the United States'; and calls on the Government to work in partnership with the US administration to achieve a secure world without nuclear weapons.
