Fact Sheet – The Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty

Submit to StumbleUpon

The Comprehensive Nuclear-Test Ban Treaty is a zero-yield ban on nuclear testing that builds upon a long and bipartisan history of attempts to halt nuclear testing.

The CTBT is an important step in enhancing American national security interests: it allows us to maintain our own strong nuclear deterrent while deterring and preventing other non-nuclear states from developing nuclear weapons.

As the U.S. marks twenty years since its last nuclear test, this fact sheet presents the history, elements, and reasons for ratification of the CTBT.
