The 1995 review and extension conference of the non-proliferation treaty

On the basis of the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) of 1968, a global non-proliferation regime has been established, supported by the safeguards system of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), which operates to prevent the diversion of nuclear material to military or other prohibited activities. Article VIII of the Treaty provides for the periodic holding of conferences of States parties to the Treaty to review its operation. Such conferences were held in 1975, 1980, 1985 and 1990.
