Security assurances to Non-Nuclear-Weapon states

Security assurances to non-nuclear-weapon States is an issue that was not fully resolved when the NPT was concluded in 1968. At the time of the negotiations, the non-aligned non-nuclear-weapon States called for inclusion of a firm guarantee by the nuclear-weapon States not to use or threaten to use nuclear weapons against States not having nuclear weapons on their territory. However, as the USSR, the United Kingdom and the United States believed that the question of assurances should be pursued outside the Treaty, but in close conjunction with it, no such provision was included.
