0 Comment

The World Federation of Scientific Workers (WFSW) welcomes and enthusiastically endorses the historic agreement between the Islamic Republic of Iran, the European Union and P5+1 (Five Permanent Members of the United Nations Security Council and Germany), “The Parameters for a Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA)”, concluded on 2 April, 2015, in Lausanne, Switzerland;

The WFSW takes note that the JCPOA formulates the essential process for a comprehensive agreement to be negotiated by the end of June 2015;

Considering that the JCPOA is an important step towards recognizing Iran’s inalienable right to develop peaceful nuclear program, the WFSW congratulates all States Parties to the JCPOA and urges them and all peace-loving nations to devote their efforts towards achieving a complete and general global disarmament;

Towards achieving the goal of general and complete disarmament,  the WFSW further urges all member-States of the United Nations to adhere to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty (CTBT);

The WFSW further notes the continued reaffirmation by the NPT Review Conference since 2000 of the necessity for Israel to sign the NPT and to accept placing its nuclear infrastructure under the supervision of the International Atomic Energy Agency;

The WFSW further urges all States parties to the NPT, in particular the nuclear weapon

countries members in the UN Security Council to exert pressure on Israel to accede to the Treaty and declare its nuclear infrastructure, and dismantle its any undeclared nuclear weapons and their components, and to place all its nuclear activities and systems under the IAEA comprehensive safeguards;

Recognizing that the establishment of Nuclear Weapons Free Zones in various regions of the world is one of the measures towards the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons and is contributory to the achievement  of general and complete disarmament;

The WFSW calls on the UN Security Council and all other Member States of the United Nations to endorse and to further coordinate their efforts  in establishing Nuclear-Weapon-Free Zones in the Middle East, Africa and South East Asia.
