Egypt Stresses Necessity of NPT Internationalization

Deputy Spokesman for the Foreign Ministry Nazih el-Nagari on Thursday 14/02/2013 emphasized the necessity of the internationalization of the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons, commonly known as the Non-Proliferation Treaty or NPT.

Nagari's remarks came in reply to a question on Egypt's view of the recent nuclear blast that took place in North Korea that originally signed the NPT, but pulled out of it in 2003 amid controversy about its nuclear ambitions.

He also urged the world's five nuclear powers to fulfill their commitments in the field of nuclear disarmament till realizing a nuclear-weapon-free world.
