London Ready to Review Proposals on Nuclear Arms Treaty, UK Envoy to UN Says

UNITED NATIONS (Sputnik) – The United Kingdom is ready to consider any proposals on a nuclear arms reduction treaty but believes that it meets all its obligations in the area, the UK permanent representative to the United Nations, Barbara Woodward, told Ria Novosti.

“We will certainly look at any new proposals which came from the US, Russia and China or any combination [of countries]”, Woodward said when asked about the possible inclusion of London and Paris to the new Moscow-Washington agreements on arms control.

At the same time, the diplomat said that the UK maintains a reliable minimum of nuclear deterrence and the country is “open and transparent about our doctrine”.
