Article VII of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) guarantees the right of any group of states to create nuclear-weapon-free zones (NWFZ). So far five NWFZs have been established including the Central Asian Nuclear-Weapon-Free one. Besides these zonal arrangements, Mongolia also earned a nuclear-weapon-free status and there are three additional geographical regions which were declared nuclear-weapon-free territories. This lecture will focus on implications to the existing NWFZs for establishment of a Middle Eastern Weapons of Mass Destruction Free Zone (WMDFZ).
