Nuclear - Non-proliferation – Reelection of Lassina Zerbo, Executive Secretary of the CTBTO (November 7, 2016)

Lassina Zerbo, executive secretary of the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO) since August 1, 2013, was appointed to a second term at the Preparatory Commission which met in Vienna on November 7.

We are delighted by the renewal of his term and congratulate the Executive Secretary on his work.

The Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty is one of the key instruments in the international disarmament and nonproliferation system.

Twenty years after this treaty was opened for signature, and with 2016 marked by two new North Korean nuclear tests, France renews its call for its universal adoption and implementation.
