Abu Dhabi: The UAE has regretted the lack of possibility on convening the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty Review Conference 2012 as stated in the Final Act of the Conference in 2010.
The UAE calls on all parties and organisers of the conference to work very hard to hold the conference as soon as possible in 2013. It also calls on all countries in the region to participate at the conference in the spirit of consensus and cooperation.
It continues to support the efforts of State Secretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Finland Jaakko Laajava on consultation with the parties to prepare for the conference.
The UAE reiterates its firm position in support of all international efforts to create a Middle East free of nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction to contribute to the achievement of peace and security. It attaches great importance to a successful conference on this goal.
The UAE also confirms that a successful conference taking practical measures towards achieving the goal of freeing the Middle East of nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction, would further contribute positively to building confidence among the countries of the region and strengthening regional security.
