Congratulations on 50th Anniversary of the Treaty of Tlatelolco, Nuclear Free Zone. May it spread to the whole earth.

Foreign Ministers of the Latin American and Caribbean States assembled February 14, 2017 in Mexico City

Nfz50-1500

The 1967 Treaty of Tlatelolco establishing a nuclear weapon free zone in Latin America and the Caribbean was truly historic. Predating the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, it pointed the way toward the achievement of a world free of nuclear weapons. And in the meantime it immeasurably increased the security of the countries in the zone, their neighbors, the United States and Canada, and the world, by erecting a strong barrier to the spread of nuclear weapons.

--Initiated by: Lawyers Committee on Nuclear Policy, World Beyond War. To be delivered in person in Mexico City on February 14, 2017, by Jackie Cabasso, Western States Legal Foundation.
