MOSCOW, September 30 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia “takes the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty (CTBT) as one of the most important international legal instruments, which should put up a reliable barrier to the qualitative modernization of nuclear weapons and nuclear proliferation in the world,” Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said at a meeting with executive secretary of the Preparatory Commission of the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty Organization Tibor Toth. The meeting was held on Thursday, the Russian Foreign Ministry reported on Friday.
Lavrov “confirmed Russia’s principal position in favour of CTBT, which should be turned in an efficient element of the global architecture of nuclear non-proliferation and disarmament through joint efforts.” “A broad international consensus was already reached on the issue long ago, and the countries, which did not join CTBT, cannot ignore this fact any longer,” the minister emphasized.
For his part, Tibor Toth “valued highly Russia’s consistent policy for the CTBT support and making it universal, as well as the current level of cooperation between Russia the CTBTO Preparatory Commission,” the Russian Foreign Ministry underlined.
