<[link removed]>Hi Friend--

“It is in the interests of all NPT states parties that this practice [of nuclear sharing] does not spread further. And to guarantee that, it must be brought to an end.”

When ICAN campaigner Elisabeth Saar, from Germany, addressed the states gathered at the NPT Preparatory Committee <[link removed]>meeting in Vienna on Wednesday on behalf of ICAN, she called out the nuclear-weapons states and their allies for the dangerous practice of stationing of nuclear weapons in other countries.

You can read the statement here <[link removed]>, or watch Elisabeth’s powerful delivery.

<[link removed]> <[link removed]>Watch the statement <[link removed]>Russia’s recent decision to deploy nuclear weapons in Belarus, has brought the spotlight back on this practice, first deployed by the United States, which to this day has nuclear weapons stationed in Belgium, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands and Türkiye under so-called “nuclear umbrella” arrangements. So the NPT PrepCom provided a great opportunity to ask some pointed questions and condemn <[link removed]> this irresponsible behaviour.

In addition to calling out nuclear sharing, the ICAN team and many of our campaigners are also attending PrepCom this year to remind diplomats of the humanitarian impact of nuclear weapons, the risks they pose, and to rally support for the UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.

If you’d like to get some more updates on what we’re doing here, please join us for a live chat with RCW’s Ray Acheson on ICAN's instagram <[link removed]>, tomorrow Thursday at 15:30 CEST. During this informal but informative conversation we'll cover what to expect - or not - from the NPT, what we’re working on while we’re here and how the TPNW complements and reinforces the NPT, and offers the best hope of achieving real progress towards a world forever free of nuclear weapons. 

<[link removed]>Join us on instagram <[link removed]>We hope you will tune in, and continue to amplify our message. 

Thank you, for all you do,

Lucero Oyarzún
