Addressing Non-Communicable Diseases through Multilateral Engagement at the United Nations. Remarks by Nerissa Cook, DOS Deputy Assistant Secretary, Bureau of International Organization Affairs, June 15, 2011
The U.S. Government is pursuing several initiatives in terms of what can be called “health diplomacy” across the United Nations system, to increase the involvement of key international partners in the global response to non-communicable diseases.
U.S. Priorities for the NPT and Moving Forward. Remarks by Marcie B. Ries, DOS Deputy Assistant Secretary, Bureau of Arms Control, Verification and Compliance, September 1, 2011
Challenges and threats to the NPT must be effectively addressed so that progress in one area is not undermined or negated by actions in another area. Countries with nuclear weapons will be reluctant to disarm when they perceive risks that additional states might acquire such weapons, one of the reasons nonproliferation compliance is so important. Conversely, the indefinite possession of nuclear weapons by some states can erode the willingness of non-nuclear weapon states to maintain or strengthen their commitments to forgo them.
