UK nuclear arsenal boost hinders NPT credibility, affects work with nuclear states - ICAN

MOSCOW, Mar17 (Sputnik) The UK move to boost its stockpile of nuclear weapons runs contrary to its nuclear disarmament obligations under the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), undermines the credibility of the 50-year-old agreement and negatively affects the UK's work with the other nuclear states such as the United States, Russia and China, Akira Kawasaki, an International Steering Group member of the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN), told Sputnik.
"The UK decision runs contrary to its nuclear disarmament obligation under Article VI of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT). This undermines the credibility of the NPT and thus negatively work with the other nuclear-weapon states - US, Russia, France and China," Kawasaki, who also serves as an executive committee member of Japan-based Peace Boat group, said.
According to him, investing more money in weapons of mass destruction is "unacceptable" particularly when the world is dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic.
