The document signed by the five nuclear powers outlined their stances on arms race and nuclear war prevention, as strategic objectives for global peace, according to Leonid Slutsky, chairman of the State Duma´s Committee on International Affairs.
In this regard, Mr. Slutsky posted on Telegram that Russia since the Donald Trump administration had proposed a formula to reach a single position among all parties. No results have been achieved to date.
“The fact that the declaration has now been signed by all NPT member states became a too serious contribution to guaranteeing the world security,” Mr. Slutsky stressed.
Russian President´s press secretary Dmitry Peskov, on the other hand, enlightened the consensus was achieved through diplomatic channels, and reflected the five nuclear powers´ stance.
Likewise, Russia´s Foreign Ministry spokesperson María Zajárova assured that Moscow hopes that, amid current complex circumstances, approving a political stance of this kind “will contribute to reducing international tensions.”
“The declaration reflects a pivotal idea for us: the inadmissibility of a war – both nuclear and with conventional weapons – among the five nuclear powers,” she explained.
