Report: Revive Cold War Contacts to Stop Spread of Nuclear Weapons

A new report from the International Institute for Strategic Studies argues that the U.S. and Russia should restore their Cold War-era anti-proliferation cooperation and communication channels to reduce the ongoing threat of nuclear proliferation. The report uses freshly declassified documents to track how these channels supported anti-proliferation measures around the world, highlighting the success story of preventing South Africa’s apartheid regime from testing nuclear weapons. Present risks are worse than eve, and “there’s a need for an investment to rebuild these habits of cooperation because the threats haven’t actually gone away. There are still a lot of nuclear weapons that aren’t as secure as we would like them to be. There are even more nuclear materials,” argues the institute.
