The 1995 NPT Conference: A Preliminary Review of the Issues
The 1995 Conference has two main tasks: first, to decide how long (and not whether) the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) should be extended; and second, to review the Treaty’s implementation. In carrying out the first task, Article X of the NPT gives the Conference four choices in extending the NPT: indefinitely, i.e., to make it permanent; for a single fixed period; for a limited number of fixed periods; or for an indefinite number of fixed periods.
