MOSCOW, March 3. /TASS/. There is a need to confront efforts aimed at disrupting the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said on Friday.
According to him, on Friday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and his Salvadoran counterpart Hugo Martinez discussed the possibility of drawing up a convention banning nuclear weapons. "The talks will begin in late March," Ryabkov noted.
"We can’t be led by those who are ready to disrupt the non-proliferation regime for the sake of some abstract views and perceptions, while according to the Non-Proliferation Treaty, nuclear weapons are viewed in the actual context, so the document is not based on abstract humanitarian principles," the Russian diplomat added.
