Russia is fulfilling the terms of the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT), reducing nuclear arms stockpiles to the minimum.
Russia’s aim is that of creating a sustainable, secure and up-to-date architecture of cooperation regarding nuclear power.
“We have reduced our nuclear weapons stockpiles to minimal levels, thereby making a considerable contribution to the process of comprehensive and complete disarmament. We plan to continue this work, as well as maintain the balance between the development of peaceful nuclear programs and the strengthening of the non-proliferation regime, including the guarantees system of the IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency) […] We believe that the balance between the three key components of NPT – nuclear non-proliferation, disarmament and the use of nuclear power for peaceful purposes – guarantees its relevance in the future […]I hope that during this conference all NPT signatory states will reaffirm their readiness to strictly abide by their obligations. Beyond any doubt, this will become an important factor of strengthening peace, stability and security on our planet” – Vladimir Putin, according to rbth.co.uk
