Focus – The European Union and the Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention
(December 2017 - January 2018)


Overview of the latest EU documents and publications of the Consortium regarding the EU support to the Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention (BTWC)

While recognising that there is no consensus regarding verification at this stage, which remains a central element of a complete and effective disarmament and non-proliferation regime, we will continue to promote options that contribute to an increase in confidence in compliance with the Convention and to the effective implementation of the object and purpose of the BTWC. We call on all States Parties to increase their participation in, and the quality and comprehensiveness of annual CBMs and make use of the CBM guide, the national implementation guide and the upcoming electronic CBM facility, which have received EU funding.”
