The CTB Treaty and Nuclear Non-Proliferation: The Debate Continues
- The CTBT will constrain the development of more advanced nuclear weapons by the declared nuclear powers;
- The CTBT will strengthen the [nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty] regime and the U.S. ability to lead the global non-proliferation effort;
- The CTBT will constrain "rogue" states' nuclear weapons development and other states' nuclear capabilities;
- The CTBT will improve America's ability to detect and deter nuclear explosive testing; and
- CTBT ratification by the United States and others will constrain non signatories from conducting nuclear tests.
