Dialogues in Belgium and Russia

Raising Nuclear Awareness

IPPNW physicians and medical students participated in a new round of Dialogues with Decision Makers in Brussels and Moscow this March and April.

Proposals to remove US tactical nuclear weapons from Europe were the focus of meetings with parliamentarians and European Commission representatives, while an IPPNW delegation to NATO headquarters brought up the apparent contradictions between the NPT and CTBT commitments of NATO countries and the alliance's nuclear policies. Dialogues at the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and RosAtom, the country's atomic energy agency, focused on environmental clean-up at decommissioned nuclear weapons facilities and ongoing programmes to dismantle Russian nuclear weapons.
