Editorial by Pfirter and Gorbachev

Former general secretary and executive president of the Soviet Union and current president of the international organization Global Green, Mikhail Gorbachev and current Director General of the OPCW, Amb. Rogelio Pfirter have published an editorial in the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists.  “Disarmament lessons from the Chemical Weapons Convention” highlights the CWC as an effective multilateral framework to eliminate an entire class of weapons and prevent their future proliferation, and stresses the importance of a world free of all weapons of mass destruction.

The Bulletin also recently published an article by Jonathan Tucker and Paul Walker called “Getting chemical weapons destruction back on track”.
