A ban on all nuclear tests is the oldest item on the nuclear arms control agenda. Three treaties that entered into force between 1963 and 1990 limit, but do not ban, such tests. In 1996, the UN General Assembly adopted the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT), which would ban all nuclear explosions. In 1997, President Clinton sent the CTBT to the Senate, which rejected it in Oct. 1999. In a speech in April 2009, President Obama said, My administration will immediately and aggressively pursue U.S. ratification of the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty. However, the Admin. focused its efforts in 2010 on securing Senate advice and consent to ratification of the New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (New START). The Admin. has indicated it wants to begin a CTBT education campaign with a goal of securing Senate advice and consent to ratification, but there were no hearings on the treaty in the 111th or 112th Congresses. Contents of this report: Most Recent Developments; History; National Positions on Testing and the CTBT; The North Korean Nuclear Tests; The CTBT: Negotiations, Provisions, Entry into Force, CTBTO Budget; Stockpile Stewardship; CTBT Pros and Cons; Chronology; For Additional Reading. Table. This is a print on demand report.
