Early initiatives, 1954-1958

It was in 1954 that suggestions were first made that an agreement to ban the testing of nuclear weapons could be considered on its own merits, either as an independent measure or as one item in an agreement on more comprehensive forms of disarmament. In 1963, the lengthy negotiations culminated in the signing, at Moscow on 5 August, of the Treaty banning nuclear weapon tests in the atmosphere, in outer space and under water. Negotiations to ban underground tests continue.
