FM Mammadyarov: Azerbaijan attaches great importance to maintaining and further strengthening nuclear security

Azerbaijan closely follows the ongoing worldwide trends in nuclear security. We support existing nuclear security initiatives and pay special attention to the international multilateral mechanisms in this area. Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) is the backbone of the global regime for nuclear disarmament, non-proliferation and use of nuclear energy for peaceful purposes. Sharing international community’s concerns about nuclear security issues, especially regarding proliferation of nuclear weapons, Azerbaijan ratified NPT after regaining its independence and actively supported extension of the Treaty indefinitely in 1995,” said Azerbaijan`s Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov as he addressed the International Conference on Nuclear Security: Sustaining and Strengthening Efforts.
