Nuclear official to ‘Post’: Israel will ratify CTBT

Israeli ratification of a treaty banning nuclear tests “is not a matter of if, but when”, Dr. Lassina Zerbo, executive secretary of the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty Organization, told The Jerusalem Post on Monday.

Zerbo, who is currently visiting Israel, said his push to have the Middle East ratify the CTBT is part of trying to “take aim at the moon” before reaching for the stars of a nuclear-free zone.

What is the difference between a nuclear free zone in the Middle East and your idea of Nuclear Free Test Zone?
