MFA: International Partnership for Nuclear Disarmament Verification working group meeting in Finland

Jaa

The Ministry for Foreign Affairs and the Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority of Finland will host a working group meeting of the International Partnership for Nuclear Disarmament Verification (IPNDV) in Finlandia Hall from 5 to 7 March 2019.

The IPNDV is based on a US initiative. Its first meeting was held in Washington DC in spring 2015. The Partnership's goal is to promote nuclear disarmament. More than 25 countries, both non-nuclear weapon states and nuclear weapon states, participate in the IPNDV.

Nuclear disarmament is not possible without strong verification. The importance of verification for nuclear disarmament is growing and participation of non-nuclear weapon states in the work enhances its credibility.  

The verification of arms control agreements has so far concentrated on the monitoring and verification of compliance with regulations relating to the limitation of the number of nuclear weapons and their means of delivery. The IPNDV aims to develop means and practices, which help make sure that nuclear weapons are dismantled and their parts destructed.

Finland joined the Partnership when it was established. The Ministry for Foreign Affairs, the Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority and the Defence Forces have been involved in the Partnership.

Mötet mellan Trump och Putin i Helsingfors gjorde att Finland syntes mer än vanligt i rubriker i utländska medier. Finland uppmärksammades också för kunnandet inom utbildning, jämställdheten och försöket med basinkomst, vilket framgår av svaren på den årliga enkät om Finland i utländska medier, som utrikesministeriet skickar till alla beskickningar.
