“Existing non-proliferation regime inadequate”

Many countries, not only Iran and North Korea, would want the nuclear technology, so a global legal regime is needed to allow them use it for scientific purposes, says Fred Weir from Christian Science Monitor.

Weir noted that there’s no reason to deny a whole rank of upcoming countries that would have a need to develop nuclear science, but it puts them at the threshold where they theoretically could develop nuclear weapons. So, according to Weir, a global mechanism should be worked out that would make it possible for them to use the nuclear power for peaceful goals while preventing the emergence of new nuclear armed states.
