Lebanon: Ratification of Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty

Action type
Secretary-General of the United Nations
21 November 2008
       "We express our reservation on the inclusion of Israel in MESA grouping, which constitutes an aberration from UN practice and it will impede the implementation of the treaty.
       We believe strongly that the confrontation of the states in this regional group would make it tremendously difficult to form the Executive Council.  The Conference of the States Parties would be compelled to find a way to redress this problem."
