WASHINGTON, (Sputnik) - US Secretary of State Antony Blinken has met with the representatives of the parties to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) and discussed non-proliferation, disarmament and peaceful uses of nuclear energy, State Department spokesperson Ned Price said on Monday.
"Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken met with a group of Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) states parties today on the margins of the tenth Review Conference in New York," Price said. "They discussed working towards a positive, consensus outcome that strengthens all three pillars of the NPT: nonproliferation, disarmament, and peaceful uses of nuclear energy."
Price said that the US Secretary of State underscored the United States’ commitment to the NPT.
"[This] has never been more important to international peace and security and to the rules-based international order," Price added.
The NPT Review Conference, which takes place every five years, is being held in New York from August 1-26 amid growing tensions among nuclear-armed states.
