Their dismantlement has been identified as one of the priority areas for the Global Partnership against the Spread of Weapons and Materials of Mass Destruction, initiated at the G8 summit in Kananaskis, Canada in June of 2002.

Glossary

G-8 Global Partnership Against the Spread of Weapons of Mass Destruction
Launched in 2002 at the G-8 Summit in Kananaskis, the G-8 Global Partnership is a multilateral initiative for financial commitments to implement and coordinate chemical, biological, and nuclear threat reduction activities on a global scale. Originally granted a ten-year lifespan and focused primarily on activities in the former Soviet Union, the Partnership has since been extended beyond 2012; it has also expanded its membership and scope of activities globally. For additional information, see the G-8 entry in the NTI Inventory.
