An open discussion touched upon the growing role of nuclear weapons as a key sticking point for the nonproliferation regime. Participants shared their thoughts on whether the NPT States Parties would be willing to follow through on their legal obligations and on commitments to which they have agreed by consensus in the past.

All participants expressed their anxiety about the lack of a shared and steadfast commitment to Article VI. One of the most relevant topics was the consequences of the Russian invasion of Ukraine for the whole nonproliferation regime as it could provoke some states to rethink their non-nuclear weapons status – both for deterrence and/or power projection purposes.
