Nuclear Weapon Prohibition negotiations resume

This morning in New York negotiations resumed on the Convention on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons. The draft is a good basis for discussion, and includes strong language including on the prohibition of assisting with any making, having or using of nuclear weapons. PAX would like to see the treaty also forbid financing.

PAX continues to engage with the negotiations process and seeks elaboration of the assistance prohibition to include financing.  This was one of the understandings shared by numerous delegations during the first round of negotiations.  In order to facilitate this understanding, PAX has prepared another working paper on Forbidding Financing in the new convention.
