Prague, Oct 14 (CTK) – A number of university professors and experts from Europe and the United States attend the Prague Agenda 2015 conference on nuclear disarmament that started in Prague yesterday.
The annual conference has been held by the Foreign Affairs Ministry and the Institute of International Relations for the fifth time.
Experts will discuss, for instance, nuclear deterrence, disarmament since the adoption of the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) in 1970, and the emergence of new nuclear powers.
The delegates are to include Adam Scheinman, a special representative of the U.S. president’s office for nuclear nonproliferation, Kim Won-soo, U.N. under secretary-general and acting high representative for disarmament affairs, and Wolfgang Rudischhauser, director of the NATO Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) Non-Proliferation Center.
The Prague Agenda conference took place for the first time in the spring of 2011. It was held on the occasion of the first anniversary of signing the START U.S.-Russian nuclear arms reduction treaty by the U.S. and Russian presidents, Barack Obama and Dmitry Medvedev, and of a two-year anniversary of Obama’s speech against nuclear weapons in Prague.
