MPI drafts UN resolution to implement Ban Ki-moon’s Five-Point-Proposal

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-MoonThe Middle Powers Initiative (MPI) established in 1998 by a group of eight leading international NGOs, has proposed a draft United Nations resolution to implement the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s Five-Point-Proposal for Nuclear Disarmament. The resolution calls on the Secretary-General “to convene a Preparatory Conference of all States, in the first half of 2012, to discuss the procedures which may be employed to establish the agenda and modalities of a Diplomatic Conference on Nuclear Disarmament to begin meeting in 2014, to reach agreement on the texts of a convention or a framework of separate, mutually reinforcing instruments, open to accession by all States, providing for universal, verifiable, and irreversible nuclear disarmament;”

MPI is consulting with key governments on the proposal with the aim of building sufficient support for it to be introduced at the UN General Assembly in October this year.
