Iran to Hold Nuclear Disarmament Confab

The second international conference on nuclear disarmament entitled "Nuclear Energy for All, Nuclear Weapons for None" will run from June 12 and 13, 2011 in Tehran. The event is expected to be attended by some 50 researchers on nuclear arms control and non-proliferation, Mehr News Agency reported on Monday.

Tehran hosted the first international “Nuclear Energy for All, Nuclear Weapons for None” conference on April 17 and 18, 2010.

Iran was among the original countries to sign the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and was also the first nation to propose the establishment of a nuclear weapons-free zone in the Middle East.

The treaty, which came into force in 1970, is one of the international community's main set of rules regarding nuclear disarmament and the prevention of proliferation.

There are 190 signatories to the treaty. However, Israel, along with India, Pakistan and North Korea, has refused to endorse it.

Since 1958, when Israel began building its Dimona plutonium and uranium processing facility, it has secretly manufactured scores of nuclear warheads, earning reputation as the sole owner of such weapons in the Middle East.

According to Jane's Defense Weekly, Israel has between 100 and 300 nuclear warheads; most of them are probably being kept in unassembled mode but can become fully functional "in a matter of days.”
