Comprehensive Fissile Material Treaty

Publication - 21 February, 2006
Greenpeace is calling for Comprehensive Fissile Material Treaty. A CFMT that bans the further production of fissile materials for nuclear weapons is urgently needed in order to:· Restart negotiations on further nuclear arms control and disarmament measures - without a CFMT there is unlikely to be any progress in nuclear arms control and disarmament;· Control the spread of nuclear weapons to countries that do not now have them;· Stop the production, transport and use of plutonium and associated nuclear fuel and waste;· Put weapon-usable fissile materials stocks, from both military and civil programs under international safeguards;· Reduce the risk of nuclear terrorism.
