Reaffirm Support for the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty: Cosponsor the NPT at 50 Resolution

Original Cosponsors: Banks, Foster, Fleischmann, Lujan¸ Rooney, Bera, Newhouse, Visclosky, Yoho, Spanberger

Dear Colleague,

In a world of escalating proliferation threats, the United States’ commitment to the nuclear nonproliferation regime remains indispensable. In this challenging international environment, it is vital that we recognize the historic and ongoing role of the
United States in establishing and maintaining international frameworks for the nonproliferation of nuclear weapons. 

For that reason, please join us in co-sponsoring the NPT at 50 Resolution, a bipartisan resolution commemorating the 50th anniversary of the entry into force of the Treaty on the Nonproliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT). The NPT at 50 Resolution
reaffirms support for the NPT to prevent the spread of nuclear weapons, recognizes the NPT’s contribution to national security, and acknowledges the essential role American leadership has played, and should continue to play, in promoting nuclear nonproliferation
around the world. 

Seven years after the near catastrophic consequences of the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis, three of the world’s nuclear powers—the United States, the United Kingdom, and the Soviet Union—came together to reduce the risks posed by weapons of mass destruction.
As the threat of nuclear proliferation continues to threaten the stability of the international community, the NPT at 50 Resolution reaffirms the historic bipartisan American support for the NPT and the importance of a strong nonproliferation regime as a key
component of U.S. national security. 

As we approach the 2020 NPT Review Conference, it is important to reaffirm our support for the NPT and the nonproliferation regime, and to urge our full compliance with the treaty.

To become a co-sponsor, or if you have any questions, please contact Michelle Schein (michelle.schein@mail.house.gov) with Congressman Sherman or Lindsay Ratliff (lindsay.ratliff@mail.house.gov) with Congressman Banks.

 

Sincerely,

BRAD SHERMAN, Member of Congress

JIM BANKS, Member of Congress
