Catching Up on the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty Conference & Other News

Posted by K.E. White on May 21, 2010

The Guardian’s Julian Borger offers excellent coverage of the ongoing NPT conference—which this entry will attempt to encapsulate.  The conference aims to wrangle out a Middle East nuclear free zone agreement.  But Iran (along with Brazil and Turkey) have derailed progress, after reaching their own nuclear accord. The reaction of the five nuclear powers was not pretty, with all P-5 members signaling support for new sanctions against Iran.

The result?  A monkey wrench has been thrown into the conference.

Two additional notes:

-The Times offers this analysis of the nuclear agreement between Iran, Brazil and Turkey.

-The Turkish foreign minister discusses his country’s recently brokered nuclear deal at ForeignPolicy.com
