A core goal of the International Partnership for Nuclear Disarmament Verification (IPNDV) is to build a foundation for understanding the complexities of nuclear disarmament verification among countries with and without nuclear weapons. In 2018, when the IPNDV entered its second multi-year phase of work, the partners welcomed the participation of two new countries as they continued to review processes across the nuclear disarmament lifecycle and prepare for exercises and demonstrations. Below, representatives from Hungary and Nigeria explain why their countries joined the IPNDV.
Ambassador Dr. György Molnár of Hungary is the Special Representative of the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade for Arms Control, Disarmament and Non-Proliferation.
“Since Hungary was invited to join the IPNDV, we have actively engaged in the work of the Partnership because we share the view that by developing effective and reliable verification and monitoring mechanisms and capabilities, we can contribute to advancing multilateral nuclear disarmament.
