Transcript of Test Ban Treaty () TREATY banning nuclear weapon tests in the atmosphere, in outer space and under water The Governments of the United States of America, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, hereinafter referred to as the "Original Parties,". It has been two decades since the nuclear Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty (CTBT) was opened for signature at the United Nations. So far, states have signed and have ratified the treaty, which U.S. President Bill Clinton called “the longest-sought, hardest-fought prize in the history of arms control.” 1.

  Charges of Russian violation of the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty arose soon after its negotiation, based on seismic signals and concurrent unusual activity at their Arctic test site. These charges were also disproven, with seismic activity subsequently attributed to a small earthquake nearby.   The Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty has won the backing of countries, including the United States, which pushed for its adoption and was the first country to sign.

The Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty obligates all parties not to conduct “any nuclear weapon test explosion or any other nuclear explosion” in any environment (i.e., in the atmosphere, underwater, underground, or in space) and to refrain from encouraging or helping any other state to carry out such explosions (Article I). Test Ban Treaty would have to take account of the possibility of peaceful nuclear explosions projects (PNE). In one of his conferences on America and Russia in a Changing World5, W.A. Harriman shows that this possibility was envisaged at the time by the negotiators of the Partial Test Ban Treaty. 3 see Nature of 12 November 4 5.

Before the drums intensify to “unsign” the Test Ban Treaty, thereby opening the gates to renewed nuclear testing by one and all, the House Intelligence Committee could demonstrate that it’s not totally consumed with Donald Trump’s ties with Russia by calling witnesses and finding out what’s behind the claim of a “probable” violation.

The effort to get a comprehensive test ban treaty has a long history in this country. The basic purpose of a test ban is straightforward. On the one hand it would help curb proliferation, that is, the spread of atomic and nuclear weapons to additional countries.
