Example text

The treaty’s nonwithdrawal provision does not mean that if a state ever did breach the nuclear ban, other states would have no recourse for responding with the temporary development of nuclear weapons. The Vienna Convention on the Law of Treaties in Article 60(2) provides as follows: A material breach of a multilateral treaty by one of the parties entitles … : (a) a party specifically affected by the breach to invoke it as a ground for suspending the operation of the treaty in whole or in part in the relation between itself and the defaulting State … ; (b) any party other than the defaulting State … to invoke the breach as a ground for suspending the operation of the treaty in whole or in part with respect to itself if the treaty is of such a character that a material breach of its provisions by one party radically changes the position of every party with respect to the further performance of its obligations under the treaty.

This is unfair and it is discriminatory against us and other states. Other than marine propulsion, the primary non-weapons use for HEU is in research reactors. S. Argonne National Laboratory. With prospective abolition of nuclear weapons as a nuclear ban treaty is negotiated and finalized for signature by states, it is more than likely that world opinion will turn against the use of HEU fuel in research reactors. The nuclear ban would prohibit such use, even though a minority of research reactors may therefore need to shut down, that is, if current efforts to develop high-density LEU fuels for all such reactors fall short.

What, then, would prevent a state from ‘‘cheating’’ on its declarations of warheads? With world attention on the unanimously joined treaty’s incipient timetable for elimination of nuclear weapons, it is exceedingly improbable that a state would attempt to perpetrate a deception such as hiding and failing to declare warheads, or likewise for a stock of HEU or plutonium. S. and Russian HEU and plutonium for many dozens of weapons. But despite the geopolitical force of the treaty’s unanimity, let it be assumed that a deception by a state in its declarations does occur.
