On the UN Security Council’s Adoption of the US-Backed Nuclear Nonproliferation Resolution

WASHINGTON - "The Security Council's adoption this morning of the U.S.-drafted resolution on nuclear nonproliferation is a positive step in international efforts to curb the spread of nuclear weapons and materials and I applaud President Obama for his leadership. It is now time for the Congress to make good on that commitment by ratifying the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty."

 

Senator Feingold is a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
