Weapons Of Mass Destruction Free Zone In The Middle East

Posted on: 11th January 2012

Andrew George has signed EDM2590. Motion reads: “That this House welcomes the Government’s support for the establishment of a weapons of mass destruction free zone in the Middle East since the 2010 Non-Proliferation Treaty Review Conference; further welcomes progress in appointing a host country and facilitator in Finland and Jaakko Laajva; notes that with growing tension the establishment of the zone is vital to the long-term peace and security of the region; believes it vital that no state in the region develops, produces, acquires or permits the stationing on their territories, or territories under their control, of nuclear weapons; and urges the Government to do all it can to ensure that a conference involving all states in the region takes place in 2012.”
