Two statements were distributed among members of the working group: i/ The Declaration of the 1998 World Conference Against A & H Bombs - For a Nuclear Weapon-Free 21" Century to be Accomplished by the Movement of the World's Peoples; and ii/ An Appeal from Scientists in Japan to the Scientists and Citizens of the World: Charging Scientists with Moral Responsibility for the New Crisis in Nuclear Proliferation. 34 In the first place, the NPT Review Process is in danger of failing. Then, there are three treaties to consider: one that needs preserving - the ABM Treaty, one that needs to be brought into force - the CTBT, and one that remains to be negotiated - the fissile material cut-off.

If the role of nuclear weapons were 30 limited to deterring their use by others, no state would need them if no state possessed them. As a step in this direction - building on the long-standing Chinese and the recent Indian pledges of no-first-use a trilateral no-first-use commitment between India, China and Russia is certainly desirable and may now be feasible. We furthermore urge NATO to adopt a no-first-use posture; its reasons for maintaining a first-use option have long since disappeared. In 1995, when the NPT was extended indefinitely, the five nuclear weapon states reaffirmed their commitment to the elimination of nuclear weapons.

The first action called for by these countries is the de-alerting of all nuclear forces. Here again, Britain has taken a lead by announcing in July that its submarine-based nuclear forces will henceforth be at a '"notice to fire' measured in days," while routinely employed on scientific and other work. Although this measure is not open to verification, it has in practice the effect of taking the British nuclear force off alert. Among the other steps they propose are legally binding commitments on the part of the nuclear weapon states to no first use of nuclear weapons.
