Thursday, September 24, 2009

George P. Shultz, the former secretary of the state and the Thomas W. and Susan B. Ford Distinguished Fellow at the Hoover Institution, is interviewed by Fox News concerning his work on the Nuclear Security Project. William J. Perry, a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, former secretary of state Henry Kissinger, and former senator Sam Nunn also participated in the discussion and released a statement concerning their support for a global effort to reduce reliance on nuclear weapons.

The Nuclear Security Project is working to reduce nuclear dangers through practical steps toward achieving the vision of a world free of nuclear weapons.

An article Shultz coauthored states that “disarmament, nonproliferation, and the right to the peaceful use of nuclear energy remain, as matter of fact, the three mutually reinforcing pillars of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. Reducing nuclear dangers means strengthening, in the first place, all three pillars.”
