The 10th NPT Review Conference ended without consensus after four weeks of contentious negotiations. Russia decided to block consensus due to certain wording regarding nuclear safety matters at Ukraine’s Zaporizhzhya Nuclear Power Plant.
After four weeks of speeches, debate, and closed-door negotiations over the 1968 nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT), diplomats from 151 nations failed to reach consensus on a conference document designed review and strengthen implementation of the treaty due to Russian objections to language addressing the nuclear safety crisis at Ukraine's Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant, which was seized by Russia in March.
