UN and EU to pressure Israel on Middle East nuclear test ban

The UN and the EU have launched a diplomatic initiative to persuade Israel to agree and declare a ban on nuclear tests in the Middle East.

Dr Lassina Zerbo, executive secretary of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO) – which is marking its 20th anniversary – kicks off his two-day visit to Israel today to push forward the initiative. He will meet with Zeev Snir, director-general of the Israeli Atomic Energy Commission and other top IAEC officials, as well as cabinet ministers.

This will be the second visit in 14 months for Zerbo, a geophysicist by education from the West African nation of Burkina Faso.
