Conference paper


Recently there has been a perceptible relaxation in global and regional tensions all over the world. The most noticeable sign of this “thaw” has been in the relations between the two superpowers. The leaders of the USA and USSR have publicly shared the vision of a nuclear-weapon-free globe, and the first tentative steps in the direction of nuclear disarmament have been taken. The general atmosphere is thus more conducive than ever before to evolving a framework of nuclear restraint which ought to be nondiscriminatory in principle, universal in application and effective in implementation.
