Browne Calls for P5 Attendance at Humanitarian Conference

NTI Vice Chairman Des Browne covered a range of nuclear policy issues in the keynote address to the annual meeting of the Washington-based Arms Control Association. The former UK Defense Secretary called for the nuclear weapon states to participate in and shape the agenda for the third conference on the humanitarian impacts of nuclear weapons coming up in Austria this December. "This needs to be a cooperative effort. If you want to have nuclear weapons, you have to live with the responsibility and the consequences of them and explain to others how you will deal with that challenge," Browne said. "We have a responsibility, if we depend for our strategic security on these weapons, to engage with this challenge. … We need to be there."
